LinkedIn Launches Targeted Updates and Follower Statistics

LinkedIn has matured since I joined in 2005, two years after this social network for business professionals was launched. It’s added many new features – like company pages – and there are now 1.2 Groups, or communities of members with shared interests who can exchange ideas and join discussions.
"LinkedIn Targeted Updates, Follower Statistics"

Now LinkedIn is about to launch two new features for company pages — Targeted Updates and Follower Statistics. While these new features are not yet available to everyone, HubSpot got the inside scoop directly from LinkedIn.

Soon, companies will be able to target status updates on their company pages to specific followers with content relevant to them. Followers can also be segmented by company size, industry, job function, seniority and geography.

Follower Statistics provides insights about follower demographics, engagement levels, update impressions, total following, recent followers, and number of new followers month-to-month.

Here is a video from LinkedIn about Targeted Updates.
