As you can imagine, writing a book about the topic of social media is challenging – mainly because the platforms are frequently making updates, changes and enhancements.
The LinkedIn chapter had to be changed a few times prior to publication – and of course, there comes a cut off point where the book has to get to print – and yet still more changes occur.
Back in September 2012, LinkedIn removed their Linkedin/apps page. Historically, you ventured here and could pick up various apps which you then plugged into your profile to enhance look and content. The new look and feel of LinkedIn Personal Profile pages meant that many of the Apps that you plugged in to enhance the profile were now integrated (ie: ability to add presentations, video etc directly into the profile content).
LinkedIn clearly has an agenda for developing sophisticated apps around user need – and it was interested to see this App being promoted – LinkedIn Contacts – A Smarter way to keep in touch.
About the App
LinkedIn Contacts brings together all your address books, emails, and calendars, and keeps them up to date in one place.
At this stage, when you sign up you get added to a waiting list. So once we get using the App – we’ll keep you posted. Looks interesting though.
