Linkedin introduced a new Faceted Search functionality. I did a trial run and it’s very impressive. Filtering search results is quick and easy (A search for Project Manager returned 2,608,432 profiles, by selecting ACT as a location it cough up a manageable 17 profiles). I think as far as finding people is concerned, Linkedin is getting better by the day.
PS: On another note, I recently bought Linkedin’s DirectAds and while the setup is painless, the results were far from effective. What is your experience with Linkedin?
