LinkedIn, a professional networking site, has unveiled a brand-new feature dubbed “collaborative articles” that would employ AI-powered conversation starters to spark conversations between experts on the site.
According to The Verge, the company will connect articles with appropriate users based on its skills graph and ask them to provide context, additional information, and recommendations for the articles.
Because starting a conversation is harder than joining one, the business thinks the approach would make it simpler for users to share their viewpoints. Individuals can provide an insightful reaction to the contributions made by the experts.
“The bodies of the articles are powered by AI, based on prompts produced by and regularly enhanced by the company’s editorial staff,” said LinkedIn spokesperson Suzi Owens. They also stated that the professional networking site has chosen a “select set of specialists” to contribute to the articles since doing so could help it get more recognition and users.
The articles also have a note where readers can ask to be allowed to comment by giving the piece a like or a reaction. For a better messaging experience on the platform, LinkedIn unveiled the “Focused Inbox” feature last month.
According to the company, members will be able to identify and reply to the most important messages more easily, thanks to the enhanced LinkedIn messaging experience.
