Social networking sites are on the raise. Now that it has become essential to stay connected to not only friends and family but also business partners and associates, LinkedIn offers the best means for doing so. With over 55 million registered users worldwide, it allows you to maintain a list of contact details of people you know and trust in business. It is a useful tool for posting your resume or displaying projects. It also allows you to research companies with which you may be interested in working with.
LinkedIn is working on a new browse panel that allows you to browse connections by their current companies, locations and industries. In addition, it allows you to search connections by entering their first name, last name or current company. This new feature will also enable you to browse new connections and connections who may have recently added a new connection by using the Recent Activity filter in the browse panel.
By providing useful tools like this one, LinkedIn makes it easier to find the people you what and need to connect with. So if you're not LinkedIn, sign up and get connected!
