Unlike social networks such as Google+, Facebook, Twitter, or even Instagram, LinkedIn does not have a messaging feature. They have an InMail feature which as the name implies, is more “serious” and feels less like having a conversation and more like you’re actually sending someone a professional email.
However all of that will change as the company has announced that starting from today, they will be rolling out a messaging feature to its social network. We’re sure many LinkedIn users are happy to see this feature as it will bring about a new way of communicating with people on your network.
That being said, it should be noted that the feature will be rolled out gradually, so if you log into your LinkedIn account right now and don’t see it, fret not as it should make its way to you eventually. According to LinkedIn, they have begun by rolling it out to 10% of its English global members, so don’t be surprised if you didn’t make the cut.
According to Mark Hull, LinkedIn’s director of product management, “We’re excited about concepts like intelligent messaging assistants that can help suggest people you should message or provide you with relevant information about that person before you start a conversation. Or the possibilities with voice and video to make conversations more compelling.”
