You Ought to Be in Pictures (on LinkedIn)
A lot of excitement tonight at LinkedIn, as we rolled out our latest release. The big new feature this week is the debut of a Profile photo.
You can read more about the feature and the thinking behind it on my post on the official LinkedIn blog.
The press coverage has been great, but because my photo is in the sample screenshots, it has been a little strange to see my face everywhere. Here is a quick snapshot of Techmeme – I think you’ll see what I mean.
Here are some quick links to some of the early pieces on the release. We’re maintaining a more complete list on the official LinkedIn blog post.
Since this is my personal blog, I have a personal question to ask my readers. I’m obviously going to upload my photo to my LinkedIn profile, and we’ve even had new headshots taken here internally. However, there is a little debate going on between myself and our Director of Communications on which photo to use.
So, do you like the photo of Adam, 2004 (from eBay):
Or, the more recent photo of Adam, 2007 (from LinkedIn):
You be the judge. Let me know in the comments. Thanks!
