LinkedIn adds nagging notifications to social-network-for-suits

NOW with even better stalking mode

Intelligent flash storage arrays

Social-network-for-biz-types LinkedIn has begun offering a Facebook-like feature that notifies a user when another member connected to their network views that person's profile, accepts an invitation or carries out other creepy stalking habits as is de rigueur in the Web2.0 world.

The company said in a blog post that LinkedIn users would start to see a "notification flag" appear at the top of the page announcing when it has something new to share about who's been doing what with their profile.

"This new feature is all part of our ongoing effort to make it easier to keep engaging discussions going with your network," said LinkedIn.

The function, which the firm said would take several weeks to roll out to all its users, unashamedly performs just like Facebook by constantly nagging members with near-realtime personal updates to the network. ®
