LinkedIn Wish List

I was just looking at my cluttered LinkedIn homepage. Which actually is not a home page because I cannot modify it to my liking. I get what they give me. For free so who is complaining.

Which brings up my real quick LinkedIn Wish List for this afternoon.

1) I want to modify my landing page. Arrange the widgets, customize them, choose another background, font type.

2) I want an IM client with other people in my network.

3) I want pictures in my profile. A head shot for instance.

4) I want a blog space available in my profile.

5) I want down loadable business cards. Wait, I think that is available.

6) I want IM with customer support at LinkedIn.

7) I want to remove people from my network because their information is not longer current and they don't bother to login and update it.

8) I want some of the ad revenue from my profile page.

9) I would like to see some a reward program related to LinkedIn usage - like how come contacts are not like frequent flier miles? The more I use LinkedIn and add contacts the more valuable the application becomes and I become to the application.

10) I would like Customer Support to please answer my email and fix my ability to send emails and answer/ask questions!

Hi Jack,

As for 7), you can break connections. Go here:

As for 4), you can currently add links to your blog on your profile. However, I do agree that integrating the RSS feed from your blog would be even better.

Dear anonymous,

Thank you for your feedback!

I did not know you could do that. I will check it out!

As for 4, LinkedIn is becoming like Prince's music in 1989 - dated. Hoffman needs to spend less time dating potential investments and a few minutes polishing his star product.
