Linkedin launches new search feature

Linkedin is probably the most successful social network when it comes to business-connections. And the service has decided it should stay up to date with the newest technologies. After the integration of Twitter, which was not well received with everybody, they now announce "Faceted Search".

"Faceted Search" is their newest addition to its People Search Experience. With it you can refine your searches for persons using specific "facets" while you search.

To find the most relevant persons in the fastest way you can filter the results in 11 different facets: current company, past company, location, relationship, industry, school, and profile language.

LinkedIn's Esteban Kozak explains:

"The filters are generated in real time for every query by parsing all matching results and extracting the most important attributes. We then present those to you in an intuitive interface that lets you select one or multiple filters per facet. You can refine, expand or stumble upon insightful information by simply clicking on the search options that matter to you.". See below the video of how it works.
