LinkedIn Beta: Small Steps

LinkedIn Beta

I saw the updated LinkedIn home page. What is really new here?

Discover articles your colleagues are reading.

That could become interesting. I like the idea of seeing my own personal Digg, so LinkedIn could do something there.

The “modules” allow you to plug and play…. but for now with only a few options (Answers, Jobs, People search). You can see how it will make sense to open this up to developers in the future.

The network connections portion shows me what is wrong with LinkedIn. On Facebook I can see interesting things that my friends have done. On LinkedIn, I see that a connection has added another 6 connections. Who cares?
