LinkedIn: The Great Content Platform (what does that mean for professional networking?)

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Check out this Buzzfeed article: LinkedIn Slashes Referral Traffic To Publishers This means that LinkedIn used to send their users to other sites to read content, but it looks like LinkedIn is keeping it's users/members inside of LinkedIn, not sending them out at all (or at least, a lot less than ...

LinkedIn & Trust

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

Can you trust LinkedIn? Read this post from Mr. LinkedIn: This Is Why LinkedIn Should Never ‘Retire’ A Feature I totally agree with Mark.  How can we continue to use a system if they keep removing features?  Especially if the features are something I build (by adding my content, like a CRM ...

Interesting LinkedIn Updates and Changes

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

Hanna Morgan wrote a great post about recent changes on LinkedIn.  I agree with her about "the only reason it would be worth upgrading for this" comment at the end. Check out her post - I don't do what she does (changes the view each time she logs in - it ...

LinkedIn API

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014

I am still asked when JibberJobber will interface tighter with LinkedIn.  This is an important question for any website that wants to interface with LinkedIn... unfortunately, it doesn't look good, for anyone. In the early days, LinkedIn created "Apps," and many a company hoped they would be allowed to create their ...

Request “early access” to LinkedIn Publishing…

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

Will be interesting to see what happens when millions of people post "articles" on LinkedIn's platform, which essentially makes them a blog platform.

LinkedIn Strategy: Content vs. Professional Connections

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

I love business strategy. I've found it interesting that LinkedIn has seemed to leave "members" hanging while focusing on pushing more content in front of them. This actually frustrates me, because LinkedIn had so much potential to be THE professional networking site. Well, they are, of course, right now, and for now. But ...

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

Check out this super awesome blog post from Reid Hoffman on a slide deck they created when looking or VC money in the early days of LinkedIn: LinkedIn's Series B Pitch to Greylock: Pitch Advice for Entrepreneurs I'm not sure anyone reading this blog is going to pitch to VCs, but ...

And then LinkedIn got sued… privacy, hacking, trust issues.

Friday, September 27th, 2013

I'm sure that LinkedIn has been sued before.  You can't get that big, with that big of a reach, and not have lawsuits.  After all, isn't it the American Dream... either win the lottery or win a lawsuit? Well, this lawsuit (here's a special website for the lawsuit is kind of ...
