Dell has been encouraging team members to post to the new linkedin Pulse, which came to LinkedIn as part of a $90m acquisition last year. I’ve been looking at it from my phone and tablet while travelling and wrote this summary today, I thought it worth sharing here with many of my tech’ savvy friends, colleagues, and readers.
That is, they appear to have introduced a new comment and groups system, are encouraging posts which are really better suited to either public blogs, news websites, or company websites.
I can’t work out the link semantics, making it difficult to share anything outside linkedin. There seems to be little or no moderation on comments and discussions. The article on CISO and Target is a good example, follow on to the comments.
I suspect they won’t make full articles available to search engines, and you will have to be logged in to LinkedIn to read them.
Since I’m not invested in LinkedIn, and not in classical marketing, I can’t see any value of helping LinkedIn recreate the Internet inside linkedin. ”
Did I get it wrong? LinkedIn is trying to be the facebook place where recruiters and marketing people hangout.
