LinkedIn has unveiled a new tool that shows users how they stack up next to other professionals in their network.
The tool, dubbed "How You Rank," enables users to see how they rate - in terms of profile views - within their network of connections and/or within the company they work. Plus, users can leverage the tool to find the top profiles within their network. By doing this, LinkedIn members can gain inspiration for changes they can make to their own profile in order to obtain more views.
It is important to note that the How You Rank is featured directly below the "Who's Viewed Your Profile" tool on LinkedIn's home page. Moreover, the feature provides tips that can help users get more views on the social network.
"We know that no two professionals are alike and by seeing how you rank relative to your professional peers, we believe you'll have the added information and incentive to help you put your best foot forward on LinkedIn," states the LinkedIn blog.
