According to ABI (the voice of the UK’s world leading insurance and long-term savings industry), the UK insurance market is the fourth largest in the World, and the largest in Europe. The size of this industry is also reflected on LinkedIn with the number of users in the insurance industry on LinkedIn in the UK […]Read More
Are you curious about, like or love the new LinkedIn Reactions?
On May 8, 2019 By James Potter - The Linked In Man
Around 10 days ago LinkedIn introduced and started to roll out the new LinkedIn Reactions (you might not have them yet as they are being rolled out gradually).

Have you ever had that moment that just after you hit ‘connect’ you realise you shouldn’t, it was the wrong person or perhaps that you forgot to personalise it?

I don’t know about you, but I regularly meet someone in another way before I “meet” them on LinkedIn.

On October 11, 2018 By James Potter - The Linked In Man
Groups on LinkedIn have always been a slightly odd place to be for the most part.

Hence LinkedIn decided they would attempt to rebuild the group experience and integrate more closely […]Read More
