New on LinkedIn: Group Statistics, Re-arrange Profile, New Events & Alumni

It seems that LinkedIn is roling out a few new and much wanted features and improvements this week. First there was the highly desired option to re-arrange your positions on your profile, then they send me a mailing to check my LinkedIn Alumni, yesterday they announced a new design for LinkedIn Events and today I noticed Group Statistics!

Note: the above statistics come from the LinkedIn Group Recruitment Consultants and Staffing Professionals. Click to enlarge the above screenshots.

These statistics provide a better insight about the demographics of a group and its activity level. Useful for anyone who wants to participate in group discussions and select the best quality groups for this.

What’s next? What kind of functionality would you like to see? Did you notice any other changes lately?

  1. De nieuwe ‘Events’ is helaas minder functioneel dan de vorige versie. Zo kan je voorgaande events niet muteren en opnieuw lanceren. Tevens geen mogelijkheid aanvullende info toe te voegen. Jammer!
