Microsoft in an email to users of LinkedIn has announced a slew of changes and improvements to LinkedIn. The company will be making changes to its Privacy Policy and User Agreement to clarify on certain clauses and add Additional sections.

In First of the two changes, the company announced that the LinkedIn profiles will now be visible to “service partners” apart from them being indexed by search engines. Service partners will soon be able to find profiles more easily to deliver opportunities. Along with this change LinkedIn will begin offering suggestions to add accomplishments to users profiles. These suggestions the company says will be generated through publicly available information both on and off of LinkedIn.

The second update delivers two new features to users aimed at making LinkedIn bit more social. After the update “Automated Systems” will use messages you send through the service to suggest responses to messages for you, meetings and ice breakers, so that you type less.

Finally Microsoft is adding a new “Meet Up” feature to LinkedIn where users will be able to opt in to meet up service so you can see when people in your network are ┬ánearby and offer to meet up.

The Privacy Policy and User Agreement will be updated on June 7, 2017. It is not clear whether these features will go live at the same time or shortly after, as the policy changes pave the way for Microsoft being legally permitted to launch them.
