- [Instructor] When you're first getting started with LinkedIn it can be overwhelming. Who should you connect with? Which companies or groups should you follow? Are there other things you can follow to help improve your LinkedIn account? Well, LinkedIn does a great job of recommending ways to customize your network and your newsfeed. You'll often see that they give suggestions on people that they recommend you follow based on your job, your industry and your interests. But the recommendations go deeper than this. For example, you can follow hashtags, companies, influencers, newsletters and more. Right now I'm inside of the account that we created for Maria. And up at the top I'm going to click on the My Network icon. Inside of here I want to point out something that can be extremely helpful. And that is LinkedIn suggestions. So if I start to scroll down you'll see here that they're telling me these are groups that I may be interested in. And this is based off the information from my profile. If I keep scrolling down, they have here people who are in the marketing and advertising industry also follow these pages. And these are company pages. So in other words, I could follow Amazon by clicking here. I could follow Forbes by clicking here. And look through the different ones that they are recommending. Below this they're recommending some newsletters. They're recommending hashtags, which allow you to locate and find certain information. And also help to customize your newsfeed. And then below this they have suggestions of people that you can follow. So remember to check out and take advantage of LinkedIn suggestions, and continue to customize your account.
