LinkedIn Today, a social news product, unveiled back on March 10, which was built on the premise of providing a relevant, customizable news experience based on key news and updates trending in your industry and the other industries you choose to follow -- today gets two new features.
"These two new features, together with the existing customizable news feed, allow members to not only narrow down the most timely and relevant information needed when needed, but to also gather valuable insights about other like-minded individuals within their professional networks and beyond," LinkdeIn wrote.
Commenting & Liking
Now, articles on LinkedIn Today will now include social gestures which will enable "161 million member professionals to engage and create a dialogue around the news headlines that matter most to them, as well as learn what is currently trending online," the company stated.
This means, members will be able to see a snapshot of what's top of mind among their professional networks.
Trending in Your Network
LinkedIn begin rolling a new tab called "Trending in Your Network." By "simply clicking on this tab, members will have yet another filter to sort through all of the professional news articles and industry updates, based on those articles that are currently the most popular among members of their professional networks, regardless of their industry," LinkedIn explains.
