4. New LinkedIn Features

a. Adding your Skills to each role in the Experience section – this is a great strategy for people starting out on LinkedIn – but not so great for those of us who have already listed our Skills and received endorsements. Let’s hope a workaround can be developed soon!

b. Audio events prompt – this has been a feature of the Newsfeed for a while encouraging you to run an audio event (similar to Clubhouse). Now that the prompt is gone, if you click in the Post box, then the three dots and create an event, you will see how to schedule one

c. Removal of invitation to connect via email – this was a feature I really valued in the My Network tab – so I could invite people who I have met off LinkedIn to connect with me on LinkedIn. Now, I would need to give LinkedIn access to my entire email address book (which I don’t feel comfortable about) or try and find people manually. I guess it aims to reduce spamming, but I will miss this feature.

d. Extra security and verification – LinkedIn, like many other companies, is upping the ante with security and a new ‘About this profile’ feature is coming soon https://blog.linkedin.com/2022/october/25/new-linkedin-profile-features-help-verify-identity–detect-and-r. It might be a good time to check your security protocols and turn on two factor authentication at https://www.linkedin.com/mypreferences/d/two-factor-authentication with either an SMS to your phone or an authentication app.

6. Monthly Musing

Play. How often do you play? Or do you find yourself always thinking about what you need to do? When was the last time you just grabbed your shoes, went outside and skipped along the footpath? Or did something that required you to do the work and not the screen? Mmm…the joy of play…

Enjoy the rest of your day and cheers for now, Sue
