LinkedIn’s “people search” platform, launched last year, has resulted in nearly doubling overall search activity on the site. LinkedIn’s have announced improvement to their People Search experience calling “Faceted Search,” which offers dynamic filters that’re automatically generated based on your actual query results. These filters let you quickly and easily hone your query over 50 million LinkedIn profiles based on 8 facets: current company, past company, location, relationship, location, industry, school, and profile languages. A new module titled “Refine By” will include a list of the most relevant facets, based on the actual results of your original query. Faceted Search offers following benefits: Enables True Guided Navigation; Provides Intuitive Interface; Improves Precision; Increases Efficiency; Reduces Need for Complex Queries.
