LinkedIn is making it easier to connect and have better relationships with their co-workers, with a new Teammates feature that lets members add their co-workers the platform.
LinkedIn has found that 60% of its members were more likely to like, comment, share, or message coworkers vs their other connections. It also found that 95% of working professionals think it’s a good idea to have friends at work, while 63% say they have relationships with their coworkers outside work. It’s actually a very good idea to have friends at work; it can advance your career.
To help people stay in contact with their co-workers online, LinkedIn is rolling out a new “Teammates” feature that lets them quickly add their teammates. If the feature is available, it can be within My Network, as an option to “Add Teammates.”
As explained by Liz Li, LinkedIn’s Director of Product, in a recent post, members can specify their “manager, peers and/or direct reports.” LinkedIn will then prioritise updates in their feed about the team’s activity – posts, comments, likes, shares, work anniversaries, etc.
The feature will roll out in the coming months in the United States on mobile and desktop. A global rollout will follow soon.
