LinkedIn Recruiter Test needs updating…

For those of you who weren’t aware, in Jan 2013, LinkedIn removed the LinkedIn Answers feature of their site.

Below is the note on their site, plus the link.

“As of January 31, 2013, the LinkedIn Answers feature will be retired from LinkedIn. We’ll be focusing our efforts on the development of new and more engaging ways to share and discuss professional topics across LinkedIn. In the meantime, you can still pose questions and facilitate professional discussions through other popular LinkedIn channels including LinkedIn Polls, Groups, or status updates.” http://help.linkedin.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/35227

I never really used LinkedIn Answers… I found that interacting with people within the LinkedIn Groups was a better way to connect and network with the Professionals I was targeting.

I’ve just gone through the process to become a LinkedIn Recruiter Expert. Question 1 is about branding. And look what I have found.

Questions 6 and 7 are both on LinkedIn Answers. Does this mean I got the answers incorrect?

More references to LinkedIn Answers which no longer exists

EVEN More references to LinkedIn Answers which no longer exists

Whilst this may not be high up on the agenda of things that required improvement, it is something that does need to be sorted.

LinkedIn…. You’re Welcome! 🙂
