“LinkedIn Live” Video Broadcasting Service Rolling Out In The U.S.
With video and live streaming rapidly becoming the next huge opportunity for the online social networks, every key name in the sector right from Facebook to Twitter is in the race to grab profits. The latest firm to enter the competition is LinkedIn, a well-known social media platform intended for professionals. The Microsoft-owned firm has introduced LinkedIn Live, a novel service that was initially aimed at video streaming. It covers everything from Q&As, conferences, and product announcements to a host of other events that are intended for live video broadcasting.
As reported by TechCrunch, the launch of LinkedIn Live has started on an invite-only basis in the U.S. The firm plans to eventually expand the accessibility of LinkedIn Live in the upcoming period. It is supposed to accept registrations from individuals who aim to use the live broadcasting feature in the forthcoming weeks.
On a similar note, for well more than a year period, LinkedIn has been upgrading all of its hiring products. It included Recruiter, Jobs, and Pipeline Builder. The intention of this upgrade was to take all of them to a common single platform. The recently developed platform is named as the Intelligent Hiring Experience. The firm proclaimed that the latest platform is supposed to bring recruiters toward more competent candidates and save their time. This upgrade is rolling out this summer with over a dozen additional features.
The Intelligent Hiring Experience is supposed to tap into LinkedIn’s present data and gather useful data about available jobs as well as job hunters. For instance, the platform might assume that a job hunter has particular programming skills, even if they are not mentioned on their LinkedIn profile if other individuals with a similar job record have particular programming skills. John Jersin, VP, Talent Solutions and Careers, LinkedIn, proclaimed that the novel platform is supposed to link job hunters more efficiently to the precise jobs and recruiters.
