For two years, weve been building a new kind of
business tool, one that lets you benefit from and
enhance professional relationships that matter. This
summer, were taking several more steps toward making
LinkedIn an essential resource for you. New Name
Search: All of LinkedIn for Every User
Were introducing the best professional search on the
Web. Now when you search for someone by name, youll
get results from the entire LinkedIn Network of more
than 3.3 million registered professionals. And weve

matching professionals in your network, but also the
top results from the entire LinkedIn Network.
Introductions: Greater Trust and Speed
Overwhelmingly, users have told us that four-degree
referrals take too long and require too many people to
get the real benefit of a referred introduction. We
agree. Introductions, our new name for Contact
Requests, will now extend only three degrees. Everyone
in an Introduction chain will know either the original
sender or the final recipient, establishing a truly
Introducing InMail: Opportunities Through the
InMail, a new service available exclusively through
LinkedIn, allows you to receive business opportunities
from other LinkedIn users directly onto your homepage
without sacrificing privacy. You decide whether to
receive InMail; you get to rate every InMail you
receive to help ensure quality; and you choose when to
share your contact information.
Business Accounts: Advanced Tools for Business Users
Beginning today, you can upgrade to a Business
account, a premium service for LinkedIn users.
Business account holders will be able to request more
Introductions, send InMails, see more complete search
results, and receive premium customer service. Learn

the right professionals and the right new business
opportunities. Send your comments to me at
