Savvy users are capitalizing on the LinkedIn–Microsoft merger

Here are three ways you too can profit:  1) Your profile photo now appears on both platforms.  Run it by to make sure it’s up to snuff.  2) When it comes to updates, forget text – video rules.  Check your newsfeed and you’ll see how LinkedIn puts video on top and is burying articles.  No wonder members have seen a 60% to 90% drop in readership.  To get attention, go video.  3) Keep an eye on LinkedIn’s social advertising. With access to user data from both platforms, your ads could now enjoy a wider audience of both LinkedIn and Microsoft users.  This merger opens new doors for users. Now’s the time to capitalize on it.
