LinkedIn's 2nd PR hire. These are my thoughts on products, public relations, and startups.

Previously on LinkedIn: An Infographic, Jobs Alert and a New High

Each week, as Sr. Social Media Manager at LinkedIn, I obsessively track the latest news and tidbits on LinkedIn. I’ve also begun curating the week’s must-read LinkedIn updates on this blog series, so you don’t have to. Here’s LinkedIn snippets from just the past three days.

Ask me questions or @mariosundar me on Twitter

1. INFOGRAPHIC: How do LinkedIn users use LinkedIn? on Mashable

Who isn’t a sucker for cool looking charts and graphs. Mashable published an unofficial LinkedIn infographic providing a quick snapshot of what LinkedIn users really do on LinkedIn. No major surprises here. Just a pretty lil’ chart.

2. Keep track of your LinkedIn connections’ job movements via TechCrunch

Have you ever wanted to keep track of when your LinkedIn connections change jobs? If you’re on LinkedIn every day (like me) your network updates will show when your connections’ job updates change (provided they’ve allowed that in their settings). But, if you’d rather just receive an email notification, this new service is for you.

Job Change Notifier by Roger Lee

Note: You can either set it up for all your connections or just for select ones. Given that your connections are not gonna keep changing jobs often, I’ve just set it up for all. Will keep you posted how that works out.

3. What’s the 2nd biggest social networking site in the USA? via TechCrunch

Quite the way to wrap-up the week, with the latest Comscore #s that placed LinkedIn as the 2nd most visited social networking site in the US, in June, with 33.9M unique visitors. Here’s another neat little chart that shows the upward trajectory. On that note, have a great weekend and see you on this blog tomorrow.
