Are you aware of the New #LinkedIn Messaging Features For Networking!

LinkedIn allows you to send up to 100 private messages per day to your first-degree connections. Make sure you personalize the message to your connection. Messaging on LinkedIn will be opened and read more often than a personal email.

On the desktop messages to your first-degree connections can include images, attachments, GIFs, and emoji’s. LinkedIn for some time has let connections add an attachment to their messaging. Make sure your messages stand out by including an image. The most current features have been to include emoji’s and most recently GIF’s.

Images can be uploaded to your LinkedIn message from your computer from files you have stored on your computer.

Attachments can be powerpoints PDF’s, or papers you have stored in your files.

One extra feature on mobile is location

Tap the Current Location icon to move the map pin to your current location. If this is your first time using location sharing, you’ll be prompted to enable location-based features for the LinkedIn mobile app. Tap Allow to move the map pin to your current location.

Android
To send a location within a message:

Tap the Messaging icon.
Tap the Add icon.
Tap the Compose icon.
Add the recipient’s name.
Tap the Location icon to share a one-time location.
The map will default to the location selected on your profile until you grant location access to the LinkedIn mobile app.
Tap the Current Location icon to move the map pin to your current location.

If this is your first time using location sharing, you will be prompted to enable location-based features for the LinkedIn mobile app. Tap Allow to move the map pin to your current location.
If you prefer to send a different location, you can either drag the pin on the map to your location of choice or enter an address or business name into the Search for a location… field.
Tap the Send icon to send the location to your connection.

On the mobile app, however, you can also add an @ sign to mention one of your connections and you can also send a voice message.

I really like the newest feature of a voicemail. It adds a personal touch and it most cases your connections, especially those in another country will learn how your voice sounds in real life.

Did you know there are extra features on the LinkedIn mobile app? Here are Three Extra LinkedIn features on Mobile ONLY!

Sync contacts and calendar. Sync Contacts and Calendar are two main differences on the Account screen for LinkedIn mobile.
By syncing your contacts LinkedIn automatically finds people you know.

Calendar sync for meeting intelligence. LinkedIn will continuously sync your phones calendar so that you will be able to:

Help you and others connect.
By syncing your calendar you get insights about people you are meeting with before the meeting starts.
Get reminders of new people you’ve met so you can follow up. Topics for contacting.

LinkedIn makes it easy to select reasons for others to reach out to you

Its great if you are a business consultant, a freelancer or if you just want to sit down with a connection and discuss the latest victory of the Cubs.

The third area is Improving your profile. LinkedIn will search and browse the internet for articles mentioning your name. Then they will ask you if you want to add it to your LinkedIn profile. It maybe an article on a website that you wrote or maybe a mention of you from an on-line news source.

Sounds and vibrations is a bonus. It is when LinkedIn manages sounds and vibrations from push notifications such as the LinkedIn Blog or its Marketing Solutions unit or it LinkedIn Sales Blog.

As on LinkedIn desktop “Visibility is Opportunity” on mobile as well.
