Today, LinkedIn (NYSE: LNKD  ) added the ability to upload videos, images, and visual presentations to LinkedIn profiles. 

The new features allow professionals with visual skills to present what they've created, and illustrate professional accomplishments. The company said on its blog that, "From the analyst who makes annual predictions on tech trends to the 3D animator who is looking to fund a new short film, the opportunities are limitless for how professionals can now use the LinkedIn profile to help showcase these unique stories in a visual way."

The new visual options can be added under the summary, work experience, and education sections of a user's profile. Content can be uploaded from a computer, or pulled from other websites, and other LinkedIn members can like and comment on the visual portfolios. The company said the new features  will begin rolling out today for users in English-speaking countries.

    This SPAM company is running out of hypes.

    One day, it's an Apps company, another day it's new apps for IOS and Android, then you can upload pictures, and video.

    Next up, it will start streaming porn.

    Enron is alive and well.

    Hilarious. I was wondering when this useless company was finally going to tumble. All it's good for is stalkers finding info on you. Hate the site.
