LinkedIn Applications – Amazon Reading List

June 9th, 2010 | by Jason Alba |

LinkedIn Applications – which ones do you load, which ones do you ignore?

I’ve not been a big fan of the Amazon Reading List application, in general. I think people generally put… well, what they are reading.  This may not be on-brand, and essentially becomes NOISE on an already-too-busy LinkedIn Profile.

I recommend people load this if they can identify some books that support their personal brand… but for the most part that isn’t what I see.

Here’s an instance, however, of a Reading List that I LOVE… can you tell why?


Thanks Ross, for sharing my LinkedIn DVD with your network!

    I installed this some days ago I just keep what booms I’ve read and what book i’m reading. all are related to my job. but yes I think it looks like a clutter in my profile. Should i remove it?

    LOL Jitendra, you crack me up. YOU are user interface designer that helps me get my messaging clean :)

    It’s up to you but if you think it clutters the profile, or adds noise, or distracts from your message, take it off…
