Just a quick comment today on LinkedIn endorsements. I’ve been checking my LinkedIn profile more recently, so I’ve come across the endorsements. The picture above describes the endorsements others have given me.
I find it interesting, because even though I don’t consider myself to be an expert in Social Media, it is the highest rated Endorsement. It would be interesting to know why people rate me in certain things, and why they don’t in others. I know LinkedIn comes up with categories, extracting keywords from your profile.
As an overall comment, I’ve read some articles which say that these “endorsements” are rather meaningless. I tend to agree. There is probably a bridge between this and taking the time to write a formal endorsement that LinkedIn can implement. For now though, it certain makes things “seem” more active.
What do you think?
