LinkedIn has been busy this year, rolling out platform updates and new features. New this week, users will now have the ability to natively upload video and obtain viewership stats. More additions include a Daily Rundown notification and Search Appearances, that show users how many people found their profiles via LinkedIn search. LinkedIn also introduced new settings to give users added control over their notifications. Yes – that means you can finally opt out of birthday notifications, unfollow a thread you once commented on, and mute posts from an annoying ex-coworker. Not to be missed, Twitter also introduced several filters to help users to control their notifications.
