New Linkedin functionality: Create Events for your Community
On January 6, the new Linkedin (Linkedin Events) functionality will arrive in Spain, which will allow you to create events for your community. This functionality has long existed on Facebook with very good results, but we missed that Linkedin did not offer us this possibility until now and this is a great addition to this great social media platform.
Without a doubt, a fundamental part, when we create community in any social network, is to be able to devirtualize the contacts that comprise it. Whether in a meeting, a conference, a course or an alumni meeting, in-person interactions help us create and foster much closer professional relationships.
According to Linkedin data, the chances that people accept LinkedIn connection requests increase 2 times if they have had a previous contact or a face-to-face meeting.
With this new functionality LinkedIn Events (Linkedin Events), you can create and join professional events, invite your contacts, manage your event, have conversations with other attendees and maintain online contact after the end of the event.
