LinkedIn today announced that they are rolling out smarter messaging experience for LinkedIn Desktop users. They have made it really easier for users to message others by making the messaging experience accessible from anywhere on the LinkedIn desktop experience. Whether you’re connecting with a former colleague or searching for a job, you now have the ability to start an instant conversation without losing the context. If you have used Facebook on the desktop, then you must be familiar with this experience.
They have also added relevant suggestions within messaging on the Jobs and Company pages to help you start a conversation. For example, when looking at a job posting at a company you’re interested, LinkedIn will now show you which of your connections work there, or who can introduce you to someone at the company. They have also introduced reply suggestions. You can reply quickly with one simple tap on mobile. For example, “Thanks” and “I’ll get back to you.”
