If you haven’t already noticed, last week, LinkedIn rolled out a new feature called ‘endorsements.’ Now with a click of a button you can recommend the skills that your connections list on their profile. It seems like a super easy way to validate the skills and talents that people say they have.
LinkedIn seemed to be just waiting for enough people to list skills to add this feature, as the site asked and encouraged users to add their ‘skills’ repetitively in months prior.
Previously on LinkedIn, only recommendations could be requested using a boiler plate request with the headline ‘Endorse me.’ Looks like LinkedIn has taken it one step simpler by adding endorsements. Personally, it’s been fun to ‘give props’ to my colleagues and friends and to receive the love in return (although that wasn’t what I was after).
