Just a quick update – I had no idea that you could tag people in LinkedIn status updates! It’s as simple a popping an ‘@’ in front of the name you want to tag (either person or company) and they will be linked up accordingly!

This can be really useful if you want to give a hat tip to someone, or make contact with them.

More details can be found in LinkedIn’s post here:
