We all know that to be successful in social networking one must share killer content, have an interesting point of view and engage with others to really make a splash. This week, LinkedIn reminded everyone that using their platform isn’t an exception to the rule as the company unrolled How You Rank.
How You Rank is an added feature to the popular Who’s Viewed Your Profile tool, which lets you see who is checking out your professional chops. Now, with the addition of How You Rank, you can finally see how you stack up against others in your network in terms of profile views.
How does it work?
LinkedIn will share your personal stats, which includes your numerical ranking within your contacts, as well as a percentage increase or decrease of your ranking in the last 30 days. Additionally, you will be able to see your top 10 most viewed connections and tips for updating your profile.
What’s the point?
In work, as in life, there is a lot we can learn from the people around us and in our professional circles. How You Rank lets you see the top networkers in your connections and allows you to get a feel for what they’re doing to increase their views. To further boost inspiration, LinkedIn is also offering personalized recommendations to help you optimize your profile, increase or change the kinds of content you share and recommends new professional groups to help you increase your visibility and open up opportunities for advancement.
So, why do we love it? Three reasons:
We’re excited to see How You Rank in action and continue to believe in the power of LinkedIn to connect us with the people we need to meet, shows us the perspectives we need to read and allow us – and our clients – to contribute to the conversation in an increasingly meaningful way.
