Spotlight: LinkedIn introduces endorsements
Last week, LinkedIn announced a new feature that lets you endorse a connection by just clicking on some skills. It's quicker than writing a full recommendation and makes it easy for you to recognize expertise in a simple manner. You go to the person's profile and LinkedIn displays some skills. You can choose the entire default list or you can pick and choose, or add others that LinkedIn's algorithm might have missed. For more information, see the LinkedIn blog post announcing the new feature.
