  • Description of this feature:Background:LinkedIn supports a 120 char headline whereas twitter has 140 char tweet.If both these features are combined one could see the emergence of tweet status as the headline of the LinkedIn profile. But it contradicts the professional paradigm that Linkedin showcases through its profile, as Tweeter is more social and casual platform.  Concept definition:To up bring the utility of headline feature of Linkedin profile, the company can tie up with its profile updates sharing partner “Twitter” and give proper emergence to feature- Twesume. Twesume is a short bio or resume condensed into 140 characters or less. Sometimes paired with the #twesumehashtag, the Twesume can be tweeted, messaged or emailed to potential employers.Benefits to the Users:It is the gain of social recruiting over Job boards and recruiting sites. With recruiters only giving a 10-15 second read to make first cut it’s perfect play. This quick snippet of information allows job seekers to put themselves directly in front of big time companies who are actively using social media to search for future employees. It’s also an excellent way to provide an encapsulated description of who you are and what you have to offer to the world. One can use it everywhere — On social media profiles, e-mail signature, web sites and of course, it fits nicely on a business card!How To:Getting Started: DIY Twesume~ Wait. Don’t write now. Let ideas percolate overnight, then write tomorrow in your pajamas before coffee. ~ Flow, don’t glow. Write fast, not feel-good. Don’t be overly precise in your choice of words at first, or frilly. ~ Avoid swearing after the second draft. Off-color words are colorless. Get the emotion off your mind but out of sight.~ Write once, edit thrice. Then let it go. Did you hear me? Let it go.~ When done, combine all three exercises into one 140-character tagline for your business or person.Using a business like tone and language that compel the readers; Give a basic description in few resonating words:Who you are?What you do?Whom you serve?How you help?

  • What is seen is that LinkedIn is making itself more prolific, by designing the site specifically for marketing and recruiting folks. The tangible essence of professionalism is lost in the making the web structure much aligned to Recruitment profile. It would be highly interesting to see LinkedIn from the substance of things or work, rather than about managing or marketing things and work. They should note that their products are not eaten up for the ‘Hungry LIONs’ (LinkedIn Open Networkers)As LinkedIn expands internationally, its premium subscription rate falls dramatically and there are no revenues the HR Solutions.Hiring Solutions is basically two businesses:Jobs postings Companies can post job ads to LinkedIn for a fee, starting at $95 for a 30-day posting. A search engine for recruiters that allows them to search LinkedIn's massive resume database and contact potential hires directly through "InMail"; this is sold to big companies (and increasingly SMBs) as a subscription-based software-as-a-service productLinkedIn’s hegemony is challenged in multiple key countries (Germany, France, China, and Brazil, India) by its small competitors, and its base revenue model doesn’t work there:Capturing revenues from HR Solutions and advertising requires a massive sales team in close proximity to the client (already more than 300 in the US) and such investments abroad would jeopardize the corporate organization. Web marketing revenues has shown its limits (close to zero premium subscribers abroad). While the company seems to follow a long term growth strategy (keep the members’ base grow rapidly without too much boundaries for acquiring premium subscriptions or marketing to beat its competitors by size, not revenues), it is unclear whether an extended free membership is really a driver for expansion
