LinkedIn vs Facebook: Newsfeed

LinkedIn Newsfeed

I logged-in to LinkedIn this morning and notice their new “Network Updates” layout.

LinkedIn has finally figured out that lifestream’s work. This looks pretty close to the Facebook Newsfeed feature although it’s a lot more boring.

The newsfeed would be better if they would:

  1. Show a thumbnail when a contact adds/changes a profile instead of “has a new profile photo”.
  2. Provided an RSS feed I could subscribe to.
  3. Showed internal and external referrals to your profile. E.g. Someone coming from Google.com just viewed Mark Chew’s profile or Someone viewing Mark Chew’s profile clicked on your profile.

Let me know how I can improve the Lookery Global Feed.
