Linkedin Update: Good-Bye Linkedin Answers!
Sad news for all Linkedin users, Linkedin Answers will be removed on January 31st. Linkedin sent out an email on Thursday, January 17th to all Linkedin users informing them about this update.
Linkedin shared, in the email, “we’re focusing our efforts on developing new and more engaging ways to share and discuss professional topics across LinkedIn.” Based on this statement, I guess Linkedin doesn’t think the Answer section is engaging enough. WHAT!?! There are 50 pages (10 questions each page, 500 questions) of open questions! Still not engaging enough?
While retiring Linkedin Answers, they suggest you to continue to share insights and questions on Linkedin via these ways:
- Connect with like-minded professionals in one of our 1.5M+ Groups
- Ask other Linkedin members questions and receive immediate feedback via Polls
- Follow influencers for access to insightful professional content
- Facilitate conversations with your connections via status updates
Unfortunately, at the moment you can’t export your answers! Darn it! And I spent quite some time answering questions on Linkedin Answers too, I got a few Best Answers and a good number of Good Answers too! Sad! Hopefully Linkedin will allow the users to somehow export the answers or somehow share them so our efforts won’t be a waste.
