LinkedIn Introduces Video to Professional Profiles

LinkedIn Introduces Video to Professional Profiles

Share on

You can now add video (and other rich media) to your professional profiles on LinkedIn, according to the LinkedIn Blog.  With this new feature, you can now “tell a story” through video as you look for professional connections or a new job or whatever you use LinkedIn for.  Getting noticed is obviously a competitive business, and video is obviously sweeping through the internet because it shows rather than tells.  And what better way to give yourself the proper presentation than through a compelling video?  Let’s take a look at this new feature.

LinkedIn Adds Video to the Professional Profile

So this is awesome, right?  You can present yourself to people around the world with actual dynamic visuals rather than just a picture and some text.  And I bet some awesome videos of people selling their skills start popping up.  You can also comment and “like” the videos as well, because this is a social thing where you’re trying to start a discussion.

Here’s a look at their slide show detailing the new feature:
