LinkedIn Adding Threaded Mentions

To make it easier for users to connect LinkedIn has added a way to start conversations, share knowledge with others and ultimately become even better at what you do.

How does it work?

– Begin by typing the name of a connection or a company in your status update box or a comment field on the Homepage.
– Select someone from the list of your connections that appear in the drop-down, complete your status or comment and post it.
– The person or company you mentioned will receive a notification alerting them that they have been mentioned.

In addition to first-degree connections, you can also mention other LinkedIn members engaged in conversations in the comment sections of posts on the LinkedIn Homepage. Mentions will make it easier for you to start conversations with your network while also enabling you to respond in real-time when someone begins a conversation with you. My question is what happens to InMails? Should users even pay for the service?


Facebook Home: A Social Network’s Bid For Mobile

Home, available on a new HTC phone and for download to a half-dozen other HTC and Samsung phones starting April 12, is a suite of Facebook apps that will load as soon as the phone is turned on. It provides a new Facebook-focused home screen that puts instant messages, news feed updates, and photos front and center on the smartphone home screen.
