Kthxbye! Furthermore, what use does it have, if that person actively decided no longer to be in touch with you, it's unlikely you can change his mind (or ...

You would need to encode the encoded space - effectively, it looks like the LinkedIn.com website is unencoding the %20 to an actual space, which it then runs through a verification check which fails, as spaces in URLs are not supported. So if you want to have a site with a URL like: http://www.example.com/?id=this%20rocks You'd need to enter: ...

Unfortunately, in order for people to see your recommendations, they must be a first connection. All others can see the number of recommendations you have, but that is it. My suggestion to you would be to connect with the recruiters and individuals that you want to see your profile. That is the best solution. Also, LinkedIn gives you an option that will ...

SkillPages seems to rely more on skills than professional network reach which LinkedIn started with. The formality seems to be lower in SkillPages as well. As the about page and video suggests, it's a site that is used to find people with a specific skill set which may not be possible in professional networking sites like LinkedIn that rely on more resume ...

Have a look at this FAQ entry Currently, there's no way to change the default language of your profile once you've set it up in a particular language.

All language profiles will show up in ...

To my knowledge, there is no all-in-one removal tool that is able to suggest who may be a good candidate to boot from your network (something similar to ManageFlitter for Twitter). However, I can suggest two tools to assist you with trimming & organizing your network (which I personally use): InMaps: Visualizes your network and identifies ...

You can either have the location be part ...

If he was your 3rd degree connection, this does not mean you now have 'friends in common'. That would have made him a 2nd degree (you->common friend -> him). What you are looking for is a person whom he and another one of your friends have now in common. Or to put it in different words - a 2nd degree connection which at least two of your friends share. I ...

Tweetdeck seems to serve some of your requirements: TweetDeck is your personal real-time browser, connecting you with your contacts across Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, Foursquare, Google Buzz and more.

As I understand, your scenario is supported. To do this, an existing admin of the company must edit the company and select "Designated users only" under Company Pages Admins.

Change the popup for one or more groups from "Daily ...
