There’s a cool feature on LinkedIn called Signal but the chances are that you’ve never heard of it. Signal enables you to search both status updates and trending links to articles that have been shared across LinkedIn.
So it’s a great way to find out who’s talking about your favourite topics, to keep up to date with news from your industry and to read popular content that people are sharing across LinkedIn. To put it another way, it’s a tool that helps you listen.
You’re sure to find commonalities and shared interests which provide a great opportunity to start a conversation and to develop your business relationships. You can narrow your search by using a whole range of filters including location, type of networking connection and even hashtags by using the check boxes in the column on the left hand side.
