LinkedIn which is the world’s largest professional network with over 50 million members and growing rapidly is considered a trusted platform that helps you exchange knowledge, ideas, and opportunities with a broader network of professionals.

With TweetDeck integration, you will soon be able to add a LinkedIn column to your TweetDeck, showing all the updates from your network that would normally be visible on the LinkedIn web page.


If you want to filter the LinkedIn column to only show certain types of update (e.g. status updates, connections or profile changes), you will be able to manage this from the new filter panel which will appear when you click the column header.


And not only will you see updates from your network, but of course you will be able send status updates, add comments to status updates and view LinkedIn profiles within TweetDeck, ensuring that you are always connected with your professional contacts just as much as your personal ones.
