LinkedIn Launches New LinkedIn Contacts
LinkedIn announced the new LinkedIn Contacts today. This is described as a way to bring all your contacts into one place.
Specifically, LinkedIn Contacts brings contacts from your address books, email accounts, and calendars together with your LinkedIn network.
“From these sources, we’ll automatically pull in the details of your past conversations and meetings, and bring these details directly onto your contact’s profile,” says LinkedIn’s Sachin Rekhi.
LinkedIn Contacts is available on LinkedIn.com, and has a standalone app for the iPhone. Stilly, you have to get an invite, and the company will start sending them to a limited number of users in the U.S. over the coming weeks.
While LinkedIn does not mention Android or other mobile platforms, one can only assume that the app will broaden its audience at some point.
