LinkedIn ‘Like’ button flags up ‘Top Influencers’

LinkedIn has added a Facebook style ‘Like’ button to its Groups service allowing members of the professional social networking site to show their appreciation of discussions or shared content.

Content flagged with the ‘Like’ button will then show in users’ news feed and members who consistently use the function, and have a large number of followers will be flagged as ‘Top Influencers’, giving their ‘Like’ greater worth.

Groups conversations have also been given a more professional look, by adding the link-sharing feature, already applied to the homepage, within the Groups page.

This feature will make it easier for the user to know about the professionals participating in a particular conversation, and will help them to browse through conversations and post comments.

Principle product manager at LinkedIn, Ian McCarthy, said: “We’ve made the conversations within groups similar to face-to-face professional interactions by removing the wall between original remarks and off-site content such as shared news articles.”
