Has anyone here used the branded.me service? There is a free version and a pro. Sets up a website for you, along the lines of about.me. Key feature is it populates the site with content pulled (with your permission) from your LinkedIn profile.

I went to invite a connection today from someone I share a group with and that option was not in the box that opened. Has that gone?

I have a feeling this has been answered previously and if so apols in advance.

Long gone and made irrelevant. Connection requests no longer cite how you know someone. All this mass connecting is fostered by LI with it's too easy "connect" button on mobile platforms and much of the desktop version as well.

Should an admin of a LinkedIn company page get a notification when someone comments on an update? I'm assuming not, but someone has asked me.

Then again, I've not been assiduous in promoting it! :)

If you have an interview-focused podcast, how do you feel about spending the first several minutes of the podcast on various news items and updates.  Or if you do is it a good idea to let your listeners know when to expect the interview to come up?

My question is prompted by having to wait till 6 minutes into a specific podcast, promoted as an interview with someone I was very interested to hear from. I found myself getting frustrated, thinking "OK, when do we get to the interview?"

well, if i am listening i would be ok with a minute or two of other stuff.. to wade through to get to the meat of why i am listening.  Or i would enjoy longer if it was very relative content.

Do you do podcast interviews or want to? You won't want to miss this gathering of pros to talk about it.
 
Do you conduct interviews on your podcast? Do you want to? Do you want to get interviewed? 

Interviews and getting interviewed are two great additions to most podcasts. They are a fantastic way to grow your show, easily getting you in front of someone else's audience and they can be amazing content for your listeners as well.

Join myself, +David Jackson +Daniel J. Lewis +Alton Gansky and +Dave Westwood to discuss podcast interviews. 

This Round will be live at 4:30pm PST, GMT -8 (your event page should adjust for your timezone) and can be seen via the embedded player on this event page. This is also the best place to chat and ask questions. 

Mobile viewers can view this Round via: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GE4CVmiksyc

If you can't watch the live-stream, no worries, the archive will be immediately available via the YouTube link above. The audio-only podcast version as well as the archived video (including all past Rounds) will be posted at http://PodcastersRoundtable.com. You can subscribe to the RSS mailing list (http://eepurl.com/GnBwr) to get new Rounds delivered to your inbox automatically.

Thanks and I can't wait to see you on a future Roundtable!
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Ray Ortega. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Does anyone have a chart of the current price of LinkedIn Premium (business) accounts. It used to be easy to see a chart with comparison of features and prices. I've just spent 20 minutes searching fruitlessly for that. The relevant help pages seem now to be composed to give you teasers but not let you see what the relative costs of the various options are.

+Irina Shamaeva Yes, I'm aware there have been and are different prices. I was looking for the main Business Pro one and the new Executive one (which I have) with prices displayed as in that screenshot in my previous comment in response to Steve.

It's my distinct recollection that when you sent a Group Announcement it automatically became a Manager's Choice item. I just noticed I had to add it manually. Has this been the case for a while?

Great article +Des Walsh - good to see you taking marketing back to the streets. We have many mobile ad vehicles here in #Bristol but I haven't seen any digital ones yet.

Trying something different with G+ profile pics. Just uploaded a picture I took, looking to Mt Warning (Aboriginal name Wollumbin), looking across from Tweed Regional Gallery. Lush countryside. Thinking of rotating with some other images, e.g. from local beaches.
