People You May Know — Now With Faceted Search!

I was just looking at LinkedIn and found myself pleasantly surprised by a minor UI improvement in the “People You May Know” widget: as you delete people you don’t know, the widget now updates without your having to go to another page or refresh the home page. Curious, I looked to see if LinkedIn had blogged about it.

What I discovered was an even nicer surprise: LinkedIn now connects the People You May Know feature to its faceted search interface. Indeed, they blogged about it earlier this week. Props to LinkedIn for continuing to advance the state of the art in people search!
