Being social is hype, particularly in the world of Web 2.0.
Search is hype as well. Now these two mash up. In October LinkedIn, a professional social networking site, launched its own search platform to a small group of users. It allows for ...
... unified search results
... powerful relevance algorithm
... a redesigned search results page
... a new search category "In Common" which lets you see what connections and groups you share with a select user
... saved searches
... choice of basic or expanded views
... a spell check
... type-ahead for connections
Now, in November they rolled the platform out to all 31 million users. LinkedIn subscribers are provided with a powerful tool to find talent, business partners, custoers or former colleagues.
