LinkedIn Adds New Notifications Feature

As a part of LinkedIn’s grand and new redesign plans to simplify site use and grow it into your everyday go-to source for social media, LinkedIn announces its new notifications feature.

On September 5th 2012, LinkedIn services announced a new notifications feature, which will keep you notified in real-time when someone likes what you’ve shared on LinkedIn, views your profile, accepts your invitation, and much more.  Very similar to Facebook! The LinkedIn professional networking platform adds icons to the top left corner of a member’s homepage, including a tiny flag that features a red round circle when new activity occurs.

According to Angela Yang of LinkedIn “Here’s what you’ll see: a notification flag at the top of your homepage and a new Inbox envelope icon. A red circle appears when you have something new, such as comments or likes on your shares, an accepted connection request, new inMails and more.  This new feature is all part of our ongoing effort to make it easier to keep engaging discussions going with your network.”

LinkedIn notifications will be coming to mobile devices and ipad shortly, so be on the look out.  This feature will help you stay more engaged with your network and make LinkedIn for business even better and more robust – thanks LinkedIn!
