Two changes to LinkedIn, one is an important change that all social media practitioners should be aware of and the second is something I’ve been trying to accomplish for a good time and eventually found a post on how to do it.
This is the major change which will affect the way many people make synchronised changes through one post. LinkedIn announced that updates to twitter will no longer automatically populate through to your LinkedIn status.
This will mean more work for some, unless you adopt the use of tools such as Hootsuite which enable the post to be sent across to Twitter and LinkedIn at the same time.
In relation to LinkedIn they will still allow you to send your status updates out to the Twitter network, so it’s not all bad.
Experience and Positions
For a long time I’ve had a number of roles in my experience section. it has always been an issue that my associate roles appear above my own company role. it wasn’t till this evening I worked out how to change the order. At the end of the day, it’s fairly starlight forward and makes a profile look more realistic.
To make this change, edit your profile and navigate to the experience section. When you place your mouse over one of your entered experience sections it will turn blue showing it as selected. Just click the mouse and drag to the position you wish that particular job role to appear in the list.
Refresh the page and you’ll see the order change at the top of the screen.
Simple and easy when you know how.
