Linked has added a game-changing feature on its platform. This feature lets users express their feeling in a professional manner.
It is really exciting news for all of us (LinkedIn Users). LinkedIn has made it live and users are starting to use it. I personally waiting for this feature on LinkedIn and I was even thinking that the LinkedIn team wouldn’t be that much interested to add this feature on their platform.
Indeed, we all know that LinkedIn is a professional network, but reaction works everywhere whether in the business or any kind of environment. So this new feature was mandatory for a giant professional network like LinkedIn. People can now express their feelings in a better way instead of writing the whole stuff mixed with symbols.
In fact, LinkedIn’s reactions are NOT the same as Facebook, but they share the like and the love reaction, and the reason is that LinkedIn is a professional network, and Facebook is a social network where everyone acts in whatever legal way.
LinkedIn has announced on its blog explaining detail information about each reaction. See the LinkedIn reactions and detail information below:
