Have you noticed the green buttons that sometimes appear just underneath the circular photo of a member of LinkedIn?
Starting informal conversations via a LinkedIn message can be an effective way of getting noticed and moving onto a business topic.
You can now see who is online and available, within LinkedIn.
On a desktop / laptop, click on ‘My Network’ / ‘See all’.
A list of your connections appears. Some of them will have a green dot (they are logged into LinkedIn and they are using a desktop / laptop).
On a mobile, visit a connection’s profile to see their ‘green dot status’.
If the green dot has a white centre, they are on LinkedIn via a mobile phone.
This feature works for paying and non-paying LinkedIn members.
