How You Rank tool, you cannot now see where you stack up to others in your network with profile views. You cannot look at the top profiles in your network to gain inspiration for changes you can make to your own profile, or content you can share to increase views to your profile and drive opportunities for advancement. You also cannot take a look at the suggestions LinkedIn offers on the right-hand side of the page for ways you can begin increasing views to your profile immediately.

So LinkedIn have taken away one of the most popular features and have no plan to restore this service.

We've lost the education button, but you can find education both in Learning.

We need LinkedIn to bring back the services it offered, so we can continue to see it improve and develop a better experience for the user.

Recruiters have been paying for LinkedIn for years now. What the new types of subscriptions highlight though, is the introduction of the Premium Career subscription aimed at candidates. This will be interesting to watch. Will candidates get used to the idea of paying for LinkedIn, or will they leave the platform in favour of other routes? Read me
