LinkedIn adds a Follow button for Thought Leaders
LinkedIn continues to borrow more features from rival platforms Twitter and Facebook.
The company is introducing a Follow button but this is currently enabled on select profiles of what they are calling Thought Leaders.
Some of these selected individuals are: Richard Branson, Tony Robbins, Caterina Fake, Craig Newmark, President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney.
This feature would push latest updates from the people you are following on your personalized news feed where you can comment.
This is similar to features on Facebook and Google+.
The company said:
We know millions of conversations take place on LinkedIn everyday. Today, we’re providing another way for you to get even more value from LinkedIn by accessing the incredible insights and information directly from some of the most recognized and influential professionals on LinkedIn.
