The truth is, LinkedIn’s messaging system has always kinda’ sucked. It’s old-school styling and stiff nature made it very difficult to use – or not so much difficult, but non-intuitive, it’s never been easy to do things quickly via message on the LinkedIn platform. LinkedIn have heard such complaints over time, they’ve taken note, and today, LinkedIn announced a major update to their messaging functionality.
From the official announcement:
“If you’re like me, you’re probably having more and more short-form and casual conversations with your professional peers every day. As you would over text or in-person, it’s now easier for you to have meaningful yet lightweight ways to reach out and light up your professional relationships through conversations.”
