Linkedin is deploying a new messaging service to English-speaking members of the website which should facilitate conversations. New features include a chat-style interface, and the ability to add stickers, emojis and GIFs.
I'm looking forward to testing this one out, and hope it's more effective on mobile than their previous version!
Starting today, we are rolling out a new messaging experience on LinkedIn that offers an easier and more lightweight way to have professional conversations with your connections. We know many of you have been asking for this ability and we’ve taken a thoughtful approach to reflect the evolving ways professionals are communicating with one another today, as well as, the different ways our members are interacting with each other across our international markets.
