Hello Friends,


Happy Summer. I always think my summers will be leisurely but alas that is not happening this year. July is overbooked, but I am looking forward to a 2-week break in August. (First time in a very long time so I am excited)

And how is your LinkedIn lately? Shall we get started with some updates?



LinkedIn Updates – July 2023

For Creators:

πŸ‘‰ Use AI to help you post. Look for the "Draft with AI" prompt in the LinkedIn share box to get started with the AI writing process.

πŸ‘‰ I am definitely enjoying LinkedIn's Collaborative Articles. Here is my post about them; and by the way.... here is the directory to view the portal. Learn about the new Top Community badges associated with the Collab Articles in this post. This is perfect if you like to comment ( like I definitely do) Also, these categories are connected to skills. Nice.

πŸ‘‰ Another nice filter for us..... I now have a new search filter called "People Who Talk About," which points us to people who select particular hashtags for their Creator Mode Profile.

πŸ‘‰ Expect to see a BETA test (premium) opportunity in the next few months for AI image creation and AI hashtag suggestions to enhance your post.


Interesting for all:

πŸ‘‰ LinkedIn Featured Section might be getting even better! I am hearing that we will be able to pin certain profile sections there. For many people, this will be amazing to highlight a certification or recommendation as an example.

πŸ‘‰ The notifications tab now has these filters: All, my posts, and mentions. It's true that notifications can be overwhelming so let's give these new filters a go.

πŸ‘‰ Now you can remove a post from your feed ( and educate the algorithm on your preferences) by using the X in the upper right corner of the post.

πŸ‘‰ Evidently, LinkedIn is now rewarding activity with an "Active Group" designation.

πŸ‘‰ Service providers using the services page will now be rated by response levels. Be sure to respond quickly as well as decline inquiries if not suitable for you.

πŸ‘‰I found this in my network tab, and then discovered thousands fewer followers. That's Ok since I don't want any phony followers. LinkedIn is cleaning house and it's an excellent idea...Did you see this notification in your account?
