I used to strongly advocate lawyers putting effort into their profile, building up their network and using LinkedIn for communicating. It seemed on the verge of turning into a really handy mini-CRM for social selling.
But no more, all the useful functionality has disappeared without notice or warning.
Some of the important disappearances include:
- Ability to categorise your contacts into groups - gone!
- Ability to send messages to these groups - gone!Ability to search your contacts by anything other than their name - hidden away!
