Sandra Long

Greetings Friends!

I am getting ready for a snowstorm - possibly blizzard - expected here in the New England and New York area this weekend. I have to say that I love ❄️⛄️ snow, as long as my plans aren't disrupted. Fingers crossed for happy β›· skiers!

For anyone who thinks that LinkedIn has been resting, I am here to tell you that things are really on FIRE. πŸ”₯ when it comes to new features.


LinkedIn Feature Updates for January

πŸ‘‰ Click on hashtags for deeper intelligence about the hashtag

πŸ‘‰ Coolest feature ever........🎧 audio events! I am a BETA tester, so will you join me at an event? Here is my newsletter article about it. And here is my post about my first test run. Thank you to all who joined me!

πŸ‘‰ Have you noticed? Endorsements just got easier! You no longer have to jump through hoops to endorse someone.

πŸ‘‰ Just heard that newsletters will be more prominent on our profiles with a new subscribe button near featured section. I haven't seen it yet, but I am ready.

πŸ‘‰ Company page newsletters.... is now a thing too.

πŸ‘‰ Now you can add images to your Services page. Cool.

πŸ‘‰ LinkedIn now prompts you to say thanks to someone who accepted your invitation to follow your page. Super.

πŸ‘‰ Do you have the new profile YET? Not everyone has it. Here is my newsletter article about this.

πŸ‘‰ Did you notice the new connect button on the "People Also Viewed" list of contacts?

πŸ‘‰ Who's Viewed Your Profile feature is going to provide more filters and analytics, but I haven't really focused on this because I am all about audio.
