This is a much needed update, and it’s good progress, but it’s not done yet. There are still questions about what the API is going to mean, and what impact Open Social will have on the preliminary API announcement. And of course there are still feature requests from users.
Overall, I give it a thumbs-up – if you haven’t been into your LinkedIn account in a while, now is a good time to go check it out!
