Do you want to enhance your LinkedIn experience on your blog or website? Now you can.
Scroll down to the bottom any LinkedIn page and click on the Widgets link. You'll be taken to a page where you can add the latest productivity enhancements to your site.
Currently there are two widgets available:
The Company Insider widget will allow users to see how they are connected to the companies that you list on your blog or website. It will show them how many people they know in total and will also supply them with a few of the names with the option of clicking on a link to see the complete list. This widget offers the best of professional networking and you can easily install it in just a few seconds.
It is offered in three different presentation formats, including as a popup, inline with a border, or inline without a border. You can even place the widget as many times as you want on a page.
Share on LinkedIn is the other widget offered by LinkedIn. This widget allows users to share content from your website or blog with their LinkedIn network. This can be a wonderful way to have your valuable information easily and quickly transmitted to hundreds and even thousands of people within someone's professional network.
This widget requires a little more coding expertise to install it, but if you follow the instructions, it should be rather straightforward.
Like the Company Insider Widget, this is a wonderful tool to combine professional networking with information sharing – a true Web 2.0 application. The Share on LinkedIn widget allows visitors to share your content with their LinkedIn connections or network. If someone visits your website or blog where this is installed, then they can literally share your content with hundreds or thousands of people they have within their own network. The benefits from others using this easy-to-install widget could be significant.
To find either of these widgets, scroll to the bottom of any LinkedIn page and click on Widgets, then click on Share on LinkedIn. Enhance your LinkedIn experience!
