LinkedIn recently introduced a feature called InMaps which produces a visual representation of your connections. The map color codes your connections using an algorithm. On the bottom of the page, there is a blank legend.
It is up to the LinkedIn member to determine what connection these contacts have in common and fill in the color coded legend. The common thread could be a former employer, family or industry.
Checking out my LinkedIn profile InMap I got this message, ”
Wow! That’s one large network.
The good news: you’ve got an impressively large network. The bad news: we can’t currently create a map from so many connections. Stay tuned – we’re working to increase the limit!”
