Introducing smarter messaging on LinkedIn
Personalized suggestions to help you build relationships and connect to new opportunities
April 13, 2017
Today we announced the rollout of a smarter messaging experience with the ability to message a connection from wherever you may be on LinkedIn, along with suggestions that can help connect you to a new job. More than half of our active members globally use messaging every week on LinkedIn to build meaningful relationships. These enhancements gives you even more value from messaging by helping you stay in touch and discover new opportunities.
What can you expect?
- Message from anywhere: We’ve made messaging easier to use and more accessible from anywhere on the LinkedIn desktop experience so that you never lose context when reaching out to your network. For example, you can have a conversation with a connection without ever leaving their profile, or reach out to someone directly from the LinkedIn Feed.
- Insights to help start conversations: One of the best ways to get connected to a new opportunity is through your network. In fact, nearly 50% of LinkedIn members have found a job through a mutual connection. Relevant suggestions within messaging on the Jobs and Company pages help you build your network and unlock new opportunities. For example, when looking at a job posting at a company you’re interested in we’ll show you which of your connections work there, or who can introduce you to someone at the company.
Messaging everywhere and contextual suggestions is rolling out globally to all members over the coming days on the LinkedIn desktop experience.
