LinkedIn announced today that users can now customize their profiles with five new profile sections: publications, languages, skills, certifications, and patents. If you just click on "Add Sections" on you "Edit Profile" page, you can see the whole list of available options. 

"If you are an author, academic professional, or a researcher, your body of publications helps define you as a professional. With the Publications section, you can add your published work to your profile," says LinkedIn’s Aaron Bronzan. "Do you speak multiple languages? Now professionals with language fluency can indicate their expertise with the Languages section."

"List your skills, areas of expertise, and proficiencies on your profile with the Skills section," he says. "The Certifications section allows you to list the certifications, licensure, and clearances that you have attained."

With patents, users can show patents that they have been granted, as well as those that are pending. 

Last week, LinkedIn opened up LinkedIn Labs, which spotlights other LinkedIn features and tools that haven’t been released to the public. With the launch, Linked shared NewIn 2.0, a real-time view of people joining LinkedIn, which utilizes Google Earth, and ChromeIn, which lets you view LinkedIn network updates from Chrome.
