LinkedIn is trying their best to make sure users spend more time on their site. Newest improvements: Facebook-style alerts and company pages to make job hunting easier.

LinkedIn is revamping their alerts system and company pages in an effort to make sure networkers, recruiters, and job hunters spend even more time on the site. Late last night, the social networking site launched Facebook-style notifications, which ping users when posts are liked, profiles are viewed, or invitations are accepted.

The well-trafficked website has made a series of launches in recent months all aimed at increasing user engagement.
