LinkedIn has announced today that it is launching an interesting addition to the popular who’s viewed your profile section of the social network.
Available soon on the Web and iOS app, the addition to the existing insights graph will show which actions you took that lead to more people viewing your profile.
The company explains more about the feature in a blog post:
Layering who is looking at your profile over the actions you have taken lets you focus on the actions that are most relevant to your professional goals, maximizing the engagement your profile receives. In turn, this increased engagement can lead to more opportunities for you.
So, for example, if you are trying to attract new clients or business leads, you can see how many potential partners looked at your profile after you joined an important industry group. Or, if you’re looking for a new job, you can look at your insights graph to see whether adding a skill to your profile or endorsing a peer gave you a bigger bump in views by recruiters.
A universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, LinkedIn can be downloaded now from the App Store for free.
The business-oriented social network has been busy ramping up its presence on iOS devices. Released earlier this month, the SlideShare Presentations app allows users to browse presentations hosted on the site.
