A few weeks ago, LinkedIn introduced Endorsements, a new feature on LinkedIn profiles that recognizes users for their skills and expertise. We want to know, have you used Endorsements? You can endorse your connections for skills that they have listed on their profile or recommend one they haven't added yet. If you think one of your connections is a great public speaker, you can now let them know. LinkedIn Endorsements are a quicker, easier version of Recommendations.
It's a little early to tell how valuable these Endorsements will be to your LinkedIn success, but they do provide users with more credibility. Social Media Examiner thinks Endorsements could be a good networking tool for savvy online marketers, because a LinkedIn endorsement is an easy way to get on someone's radar. It is also a good way to show you care about people who work with you. The new feature is an easy way to show recognition to the business connections you value the most.
