If Your Net Worth Is Your Network LinkedIn’s New App Is Worth It’s Weight In Gold
Like Facebook, LinkedIn’s new app is centered around a central feed, which shows you updates from people in your network and content they are sharing on LinkedIn. Similar to Facebook’s News Feed, the app filters which updates you’ll see based on what you’re most likely to be interested in — and the company says the feature will get better over time as you use the app more.
Outside of the feed, there’s a “My Network” section, which serves up suggested people you may know, as well as cards with bite-sized updates about your connected friends, such as work anniversaries and new jobs. If that sounds familiar, that’s because it’s similar to LinkedIn’s Connected app, which revolves around updates like these.
The updated app also includes the newly-refreshed messaging features and an overhauled search feature that LinkedIn says is 300% faster than the previous app.
