LinkedIn Feature Update  - 
 
I saw a blurb somewhere that our ability to publish posts to LinkedIn may be going away. Now I can't find it. I guess it was just a rogue rumor. Pulse is no longer a menu option for me and has been gone for awhile. I can still see notifications from people in my network when they publish a post. Otherwise we can only see if something hits the newsfeed? No way to navigate to it? Any insights as to what's happening with the publishing platform/Pulse?

I personally like the ability to scan through Pulse articles like you would the WSJ or something! But I guess I can see why they would want to seamlessly integrate all content into the news feed. Thanks everybody.

Hey if you all haven't listened to this yet regarding the Microsoft/LinkedIn merger they bring up some good points from a marketing perspective. I'm particularly intrigued about the opening up of LinkedIn's API. I hope everything doesn't move into the Microsoft walled garden though...meaning...you have to use Microsoft products in order to reap the benefits.
Extra! Extra! Listen in to find out what Sean Jackson and Jabez LeBret have to share about this latest news! You’ll hear bold predictions, what you need to do next, and much more!

Much of this episode focuses on Bing and search optimisation which is pretty irrelevant giving that nobody uses Bing! If anything it could be the opposite if Google react badly to this.

Do any of you manage a LinkedIn group? I am so frustrated with the 'free-posting' change. It's impossible for me to stay on top of member posts now and most are overtly promotional! I guess I have to moderate all 4000 members? Surely there is a better way. Engagement levels are still really low as well, even with me posting questions. Any ideas or thoughts? Are LinkedIn groups doomed for the most part?

Does anyone know if there is a way to see the people you most recently accepted invitations from? I had a personalized message from someone who sent me an invite that I wanted to respond to, and now I can't remember the person's name! Thanks. By the way, is there a LinkedIn group for LinkedIn experts?
