In the news this week: Twitter Releases New Analytics Tool for Organic Tweets Finally! The day we've all been waiting for is here! Last Friday, Twitter released a brand spanking new analytics dashboard for advertisers, Twitter Card publishers and those lucky enough to be considered as verified Twitter users. While company have been providing advertisers with data relating to their tweets for some time now, the only data available was that relating to tweets the advertiser had paid to promote. The data covered things like impressions, replies and link clicks but the same data for regular everyday, non-promoted tweets was non-existent. The new dashboard offers the user a broader view of their account's progress and effectiveness and includes really important data like total impressions, total engagements, and engagement rates for each tweet. It also aggregates that data for the past month and shows you in a visual graph format, how you've been doing compared to previous months. With the new dashboard, you can: See how your Tweets are performing in real time. Compare impressions (times a Tweet is viewed by anyone on Twitter web and Android or iOS apps, including logged-out users), total engagements and Retweets month over month. Use the Tweet details page to see how many Retweets, replies, favourites, follows, link clicks and embedded media clicks each Tweet received. Clarification of the 'Apply with LinkedIn' Button Debacle You may remember we reported news of Bill Boorman's findings in relation to the "Apply with LinkedIn" button in the news 2 weeks ago. After examining the terms and conditions surrounding LinkedIn one touch apply button "Apply with LinkedIn", Bill announced on his Facebook that the product is explicitly not for agencies or job boards (grouped under 3rd parties). And although LinkedIn did not prevent 3rd parties from using the tool, it would appear that they have the right to turn it off whenever they want. This week, we took the liberty of reaching out to LinkedIn directly and asking them what the deal with the terms and conditions are surrounding the button really are. This was their response: @socialtalent Staffing agencies are approved&more info will be provided on Developers Forum before July 31st. Sorry for delay confirming! /K — LinkedIn Help (@LinkedInHelp) LinkedIn Buy Newsle On July 14th, LinkedIn welcomed the Newsle team to the LinkedIn family. But who and what are Newsle I hear you ask, well Newsle (by LinkedIn's own admission) share quite a similar goal to LinkedIn in terms of what they do. In a nutshell, they provide their users with professional insights that make them better at what they do and they do so by providing you with more knowledge about the people in your network. Newsle's "disambiguation, natural language processing and machine learning algorithms" search the web for any mention of you or the people in your network so you can "surface relevant insights that help you hit your next meeting with them out of the park". Jobandtalent Raises $14m Jobandtalent, a recruitment platform that uses linguistic analysis to help jobseekers find roles they might otherwise miss, has closed a $14 million Series A funding round.

Google+ Stops Requiring Real Names Google is making an apology. An apology to all the users had an "unnecessarily difficult experiences" when trying to give themselves a name on their Google+ profile. You see when Google+ first launched in 2011, it had a strict policy that required users to use their real names when setting up an account, and it deleted accounts that used pseudonyms. The policy prompted complaints and criticism from users. Nevertheless, Google even tried to require real names on its YouTube service for a time. But as of last Tuesday, Google say there will be "no more restrictions on what name you can use". LinkedIn Settles Lawsuit with HiringSolved Back in January, LinkedIn filed a lawsuit against unnamed defendants for, among other alleged violations, "maliciously creating fake profiles and using Amazon Web Services as a smokescreen to hide the still anonymous defendant's illicit pilfering of 'LinkedIn data'". Shortly after the suit was filed, the original complaint was amended to reveal the real identity of the previously unnamed defendant as HiringSolved. But after months of legal machinations, motions and negotiation, a settlement has finally been made. For the Full Blog and more go to socialtalent.co/blog
