Just a brief update about a new LinkedIn feature that is very Facebook-like because it enables you to engage with your network by mentioning your connections and companies in conversations. It’s called Mentions on LinkedIn.
The neat part is the person or company you mentioned will receive a notification alerting them that they have been mentioned. You can learn more at LinkedIn’s blog. This feature is being rolled-out to English-speaking members first and then globally.
Here is a SlideShare presentation prepared by LinkedIn describing the new feature. LinkedIn owns SlideShare, in case you didn’t know.
