Compared to other social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, LinkedIn is known as an effective network for job searches and forging professional connections.
The network recently introduced a new feature that will help job seekers increase their chances of finding the ideal position and profession.
Hashtags have long been used by other social media websites but it was only now that LinkedIn decided to add it to its arsenal of features, thereby making it easier for potential employees to get connected to key companies that they’re eyeing.
Before, using a hashtag will present an active blue link that will lead you to a search page on LinkedIn to present other online users that talk about the same issue.
With the emergence of hashtags on LinkedIn, many online users will experience the benefits of immediately going to the actual conversation when clicking on the hashtag instead of the blue link.
The new feature was launched by the social media network quietly so many users were surprised to discover the changes that let them cross reference to other users’ comments and conversations.
The introduction of hashtags by LinkedIn will definitely improve its standing against other giants in the industry. Users, on the other hand, will enjoy posting their resumes and relying on hashtags to stay updated.
