1. How to install –

3. Newsfeed – Along with making individual recommendations, you can now post directly to your newsfeed for your entire network to see. Click this button and tell all your friends about an event you think they’ll be interested in, a new job your company is recruiting for, or a sales opportunity. When you refer a friend, you’ll also now see that on your newsfeed:
