In this interview with Forbes magazine Jeff Weiner (LinkedIn CEO) reveals that they are currently testing a new messaging feature for LinkedIn. This is great news and not before its time. What do you think it will be like? Will it be on the desktop app or mobile or both?
I can’t wait to see what it will be like and think it could be a game changer for LinkedIn. New features are always rolled out gradually so if you get it before me then please let me know and send me some screenshots to firstname.lastname@example.org
Update: Since publishing LinkedIn have formally announced this new feature in this blog post. I don’t have it yet. Do you?
Also I need to warn you about a product called ‘Advanced Social Messenger’. Do not use this product on LinkedIn or you might be the next recipient of a message like this!
Finally this will be the last episode for a couple of weeks. I’m going for a much needed break in the sun when I intend to do very little except relax, eat and drink!
The next episode of LinkedInformed will be released on 19th September.
Thank you so much for listening, I really value your support and interest.
