LinkedIn is now more than a business & employment social network


LinkedIn is now more than a business & employment social network

Posted on 10 September 2017 by Rekha Sharma

LinkedIn is now more than a business & employment social network We all know that LinkedIn is a business-focused social networking site. It was launched in the year 2003. It is a business oriented site that lets you find other business associates, clients, and colleagues whom you already know. LinkedIn is a place to post a resume, create a professional profile, asking and answering business questions and to extend the network. But do you know that now LinkedIn is also used by the people to get new email alerts when a new employee joins the same company or a competitor company?

For this, you have to set up people alert in LinkedIn and they will send you an email when a new employee joins the company you are searching about. To start this feature lets open the LinkedIn website, click the search box, type the name of the specified company and choose the “people search” option from the autocomplete list.

On the search results page, expand the Locations section and check the regions that you would like to track. You can select the country name, city, geographic region or even make multiple selections.

After that click on  “Create Search Alert” button and LinkedIn will send you a weekly email which will contain the list of all profiles of those employees that have joined the specified company in that week. The service will depend on the employee joining the company and he would have to update their existing profile for LinkedIn to know that they have made the move.

Reasons why LinkedIn is more than just a social network:

  • LinkedIn has a growing number of professionals. According to Forbes, LinkedIn has now more the 330 million members. The number itself is enough proof that you’re missing a huge amount of connections, industry influencers that you’ve haven’t met and engaged with by using Facebook.
  • LinkedIn is a fabulous resource for companies in the B2B arena.  We know that people buy from people they know or at least trust.  LinkedIn uses individual’s networks to build on this basic human behavior.  The results for businesses can be remarkable. Plus by having company pages you are able to highlight your company’s products, services and unique position in the market. Here’s how you can optimize your LinkedIn profile.
  • Human resources, scouts and head hunters spend a lot of time scouring their next big rock star in LinkedIn. If you think you are great in what you do, do showcase your skills, achievements, and portfolio by creating a profile of your own. You may land the best job and get the best offer yet for your skillset.
  • LinkedIn uses groups to add a level of engagement that is more fun and encourages connecting! Join a  group that shares the same interest and passion with you. Better yet, find groups that your potential clients enjoy and engage them in conversation. You can raise a quick Q&A within your group or share a relevant experience that the group will benefit from.
  • Got a website or blog?  LinkedIn is a great platform to share and promote your blogs, business, and your services. Make sure to craft a high-quality, informative article to share and ask for help to make it go viral. Shares and article views could reach millions. Simply do the math. They used to say that I had several million 3rd degree connections in my network.

iOS 8 scans credit card details using iPhone camera

Posted on 07 June 2014 by wisdom

Apple is aiming to make online orders a little easier. For that Apple add new feature in forthcoming iOS 8 which allow user to fill in online payment forms by using the camera to scan credit card details.

The new feature, first spotted by 9to5Mac, gives iPhone and iPad owners the opportunity to “Scan Credit Card” details, when the numerical keyboard pops up on shopping sites.

Users can then place their plastic within a frame and, thanks to a little optical character recognition the camera will do the rest, filling in the details automatically.

The idea is to save a few seconds off making an online purchase and, in some cases, will save folks squinting at that faded expiration date.

It’s just one of a number of new features in Safari for iOS 8. Apple revealed earlier this week that Safari users will be able to request a full desktop version of a site from an iPhone, and a new tab view has been implemented in the iPad version of the browser. iOS 8 is currently available to developers in beta form, and Apple expects to ship it to existing devices in the fall.

Dish TV Launched Streaming Service for Android, iOS and the Web

Posted on 03 October 2013 by wisdom

indexDish TV launch the Streaming service for their subscribers, using this service Dish TV subscriber can watch Live TV on their Smartphone and mobile. The service named DishOnline. Customer can use it on web browser, Android and iOS devices.

With DishOnline Streaming, Dish TV subscriber can view 35 channels live, stream over 1000 movies and catch up on past episodes of their favorite shows across 4 different sections. The subscriptions packages start with Starter Pack at Rs. 49 and go up to Rs. 129 for the Jumbo Pack. With the Starter Pack customers will only have access to movies, TV shows and videos and with the Jumbo Pack they get the services of Starter Pack along with live TV streaming. Early subscribers would be able to avail these packs at discounted rates of Rs. 29 and Rs. 69 respectively.

Since this is a Dish TV service you get access to most Zee Network channels and a few more. Dish TV has collaborated with Ditto TV to bring this service to their users. To be honest though, Ditto TV service is a tad better than this as you do not have to be a Dish TV subscriber and you get more channels like Colors and MTV. The only difference is that Ditto TV packages are slightly expensive as compared to DishOnline ones. But since you are getting more channels the prices would not hurt. Now it’s a good move by Direct to Home operators understanding the importance of live streaming channels and it would inspire other operators to venture in this business, but in a country like India where mobile internet service is still quite expensive will people go for streaming services that hurt their data limits? Only time will tell.
