Adding private notes to Linkedin profiles

by fouts

It’s funny how social media sites seem to move in waves. Lately I’ve been doing more speaking and presentations on social media, and going to lots of conferences, which has led to a huge swell in Linkedin invites. So I’ve been spending a lot of time on the site and learning some new tricks. I’ll share a few more as I find them, but this one spurred a bunch of questions when I posted it to Twitter, so here’s a screen-shot. Basically Facebook allows you to add comments that are private (seen only to you) on the profiles of your first level contacts.

What’s the big deal?
When you’ve got a lot of connections on Linkedin it’s nice to keep tabs on who’s doing what, where you met, links to blogs, questions or answers on the site itself. what you talked about etc. Lacking a decent CRM, you can make notes on the profiles of your connections to keep on top of it. Then you can download the connections and the notes as a CSV and import into your CRM database.

    Thank you, Janet. Have you found a simple way to add and view notes in the new LinkedIn view. I have been frustrated with the number of clicks to get there, compared to the old look, when I just typed in the box on the user’s page and clicked Save.
    Thank you,
