Exclusive: LinkedIn Kill LinkedIn Fast Widget Functionality

LinkedIn FastIt was good while it lasted, and provided needed functionality to LinkedIn, and was widely supported by open networkers on the social networking platform.

During a routine check of functionality I discovered that the “get” method of form completion which was used by the fast connection solution is now being blocked, and thus have made a notification post on the LinkedIn Answers service within “Using LinkedIn”, and have also changed the graphic that was being served to a number of sites to hopefully notify them of the change.
