Nice to see LinkedIn getting to be a little more robust and offering up more functionality to make it useful for users. So far we’ve seen the groups offering which is way handy although from the admin perspective the groups really need some more help – ie. faster ways to edit icons, ability to direct connect to entire group etc… but it is a great start. Today LinkedIn has rolled out even more features (ala Application Directory) to facilitate even more collaboration with your contacts. they say it enables users to “Work collaboratively with your network.”
new features include:
Box on LinkedIn: Share files and collaborate with your network.
Huddle on LinkedIn: Private workspaces to collaborate with your network on projects.
Share information and keep up to date with your network.
Amazon on LinkedIn: Discover what your network is reading.
TripIt on LinkedIn: See where your network is traveling.
SixApart on LinkedIn: Stay up to date with your network’s latest blog posts.
Present yourself and your work in new ways.
Google Docs on LinkedIn: Embed a presentation on your profile.
SlideShare on LinkedIn: Share, view and comment on presentations from your network.
WordPress on LinkedIn: Promote your blog and latest posts.
Gain key insights that will make you more effective.
Company Buzz by LinkedIn: See what people are saying about your company.
Should be interesting to see how well these add-ons work. Trip-it is the one location-aware add-on that enables you see where your connections are traveling… lets see if this one lives up to any of the other similar tools like Doplr and whereyougonnabe.
