Updated LinkedIn feature makes connecting easier

LinkedIn has updated the algorithm to their “People You May Know” feature, making results more streamlined, relevant, and most importantly accurate so that connections are much easier to find and make.

Updated LinkedIn feature is a huge improvement

LinkedIn announced an update to the People You May Know feature to be rolled out to all users in the coming weeks to better connect users based on their affiliations. The company says that since their original launch, “this powerful feature has helped millions of professionals discover and grow their professional network with personalized and relevant suggestions of people you may know and should connect with.”

The interface is more streamlined and uses tiles with users’ faces and basic information, narrowed down by different parts of your professional life. LinkedIn’s goal was to make it easier to find and connect with people in your network. Our team tried it out today and was surprised at how many people were not already in our networks that should have been, indicating to us that the feature is most definitely improved.

The company said in a statement, “Behind the scenes, our algorithm identifies people you may want to connect with based on factors like your existing network, past workplaces, and where you’ve gone to school. With these changes, you’ll see more relevant results as you scroll down the page.”

These improvements will be rolled out to all users soon, but if you’re impatient like us, you can get early access to the new feature here.
