I have a question that I am interested in hearing opinions on. When you add the Facebook “Like Button” to your website, you are able to tie it to your Facebook “fan page” on Facebook, or to the URL of the page that the “like button” resides on.
Which you guys think is more effective? Having someone click the “like” button which in turn turns them into a “fan” of your page, or having someone click the “like” button which in turn shares the URL of the page they are on to all their friends. Comment and vote below. Thanks.
Today LinkedIn launched their previously announced “Apply with LinkedIn” button that will allow people to apply to jobs on a company’s website by pressing a button that will submit their LinkedIn profile as their job application. Here’s the full Mashable story.
A lot of the news articles on this button are leaving out the link to get the actual code to implement it on your site, so if you’re looking for the “Apply with LinkedIn” button code, here it is: https://developer.linkedin.com/
Remember Peter Thiel’s fellowship program that awards 20 people under 20 years old $100,000 each to shun college and pursue a startup idea? Well check out one of the first ideas to come out of this: RadMatter.
Its founder, Dale Stephens, explains that “RadMatter revolutionizes how we develop and demonstrate talent in the 21st century.” Think LinkedIn, but without all of the traditional factors you would use to evaluate a job candidate, like grades, college degrees, and traditional resumes.
RadMatter’s goal is to let people showcase their “talents” rather than their “skills.” I’m excited to see how they do this.
