I've been fairly vocal on LinkedIn's opportunity to expand its services, having first written about how LinkedIn can be made "even better", and second, writing a 10-point list that specifically outlined service enhancements to expand their user experience. As most great Web-focused companies do, they are listening.
Today, I received a comment from Steve Ganz, head Web developer at LinkedIn, who said some of the features I requested were available, and others were Imminent.
He commented, "These are all great ideas. Thanks so much for the great feedback, Louis! Stay tuned."
The first addition?
5. Allow Me to Export my LinkedIn Profile as PDF or Word
Check! You will now find a link to download your LinkedIn Profile as a PDF right above your name on the profile page.
And it works too! You can download my LinkedIn profile here, complete with resume and recommendations, as I had outlined. My standard profile is here.
Also coming soon, an official LinkedIn blog. Looking forward to it.
