[SMK] Social Media Knowledge


LinkedIn goes Tinder-style

LinkedIn has announced plans to let users to seek out and connect with experts, to either gain a mentor or new employment opportunities.

Nope, nope, yes! Swipe.

At present, the new feature is only available to a limited selection of San Francisco and Australia-based participants. Potential mentors will have the ability to choose who is able to approach them for help.

Selection criteria can be focused on members of a user’s first and second degree network, people located in their surrounding area, and fellow university grads.

My mind is a garden of business tidbits

The new push for intermingling is LinkedIn’s bid to encourage business experts to share their experience and skills with up-and-coming professionals, looking to climb the ladder.

LinkedIn may also be trying to thwart competitors such as BetterUp and Everwise and keep users  straying from their platform.

Would you be interested in swiping for professional advice? Are you surprised at the hybrid influence of Tinder over LinkedIn? We want to know what you think, give us your thoughts in the comments below.
