A great new LinkedIn Search feature called Signal!

LinkedIn just announced a great new feature called “Signal”.  According to LinkedIn, Signal gives you “relevant insights through the professional lens on what people are sharing and tweeting”.

.

It’s simple and easy to use.  You can watch the introductory video Begin by clicking on the highlighted “NEW” next to the Search Updates window to the right of your Home page Updates menu bar.

.

Or just type in the key word(s) you want to search for in the Search Updates box and click on the blue magnifying glass icon. 

I tried it by typing in my favorite word “deliverance”.  Of course I got some responses from movie buffs, but there were several others that were interesting enough to pursue.  The normal internet search rules apply, if you want to search for two words together, enclose them in quotation marks, etc.

Like the people search, you can SAVE the Search if you’d like, and LinkedIn will send you any new updates as they occur.  This allows you to keep up with the postings you are interested in or concerned about without having to constantly search, and does some of the filtering for you. 

The best way to take full advantage of LinkedIn’s features and benefits is to use them.  Give Signal a try and let me know how it works.

As always, thank you for reading Linked4Ministry.  If you are new here, the best way to receive all the new posts is to subscribe for e-mail updates at the top right.  If you have been following Linked4Ministry and find it helpful, please consider sharing it with other ministry partners that it could benefit.  It’s easy to do by clicking on the following buttons, and it’s OK to click more than one !

Blessings,
