LinkedIn Applications: Location of 3rd Party Content. Your Profile has changed

Recruiters: What do you think of the changes to your new LinkedIn Profile? Effective immediately. I am not too concerned because I am not vested like a few others I know, however....I do find it a bit annoying that they've completely revamped my profile, deleted my feeds etc. 

Because I am a recruiter I will go in and change re-create my profile to reflect my "online footprint" but  I am not sure that the masses will.

My gut tells me that LinkedIn will see the true number "daily activity" and "active profiles" and that may disappoint them.

From the LinkedIn Blog: Posted 12/10/2012

LinkedIn Applications are being replaced with a new feature that lets you add media links to images, presentations, videos, and documents on your profile. You may click below to see how to access content for some of those applications:

My Travel by TripIt

You will be able to continue to post TripIt updates to your LinkedIn network and profile by linking your TripIt and LinkedIn accounts. Show me how.

 
Legal Updates by JD Supra

We are actively working with JD Supra to integrate the content from your JD Supra portfolio into your new LinkedIn profile. Expect to hear from JD Supra directly as we make this switch. In the meantime, if you’ve been posting your documents via the "Legal Updates" app, you can continue to update your network with your latest content by logging into your account on JD Supra.

 
Portfolio Display by Behance

Any of your Behance content you’ve uploaded using the Portfolio Display application will be automatically migrated to the Summary section of your profile once you opt into the newly redesigned LinkedIn Profile. If you were a user of this application, you should receive an invite to opt into the new profile design shortly.

 
SlideShare Presentations by SlideShare

Any SlideShare content you’ve uploaded using the SlideShare Presentations application will be automatically migrated to the Summary section of your profile once you opt into the newly redesigned LinkedIn profile. If you were a user of this application, you should receive an invitation to opt into the new profile design shortly.

 
Lawyer Ratings by LexisNexis

With this new platform, applications such as the Lawyers Rating Application by LexisNexis®Martindale-Hubbell® will no longer be supported. This application icon will no longer display on your LinkedIn profile. Be on the look-out for the next generation Ratings application from LexisNexis®Martindale-Hubbell® available in the near future.

 
WordPress by Automatic

If you self-host your WordPress site, you can enable auto posting to LinkedIn through the Jetpack plugin from Automatic.

If your site is on WordPress.com, simply enable the Publicize setting for LinkedIn from your WordPress.com Dashboard.
