LinkedIn now shows where you rank among connections in profile views

The company announced Wednesday morning that it is now taking that feature one step further, offering users the ability to see how they rank in profile views among their colleagues and connections. By adding a touch of competition, LinkedIn is trying to drive users to spend more time updating their profiles and tweaking their presence on the site — even when they’re not job hunting.
