Back at the end of October, LinkedIn introduced its new applications platform. The LinkedIn Intelligent Applications (InApps) platform allows companies to develop professional applications for the sites members. It features applications from Amazon, Google, Box.net, Huddle, Six Apart, SlideShare, Tripit and WordPress.
LinkedIn wasn’t always one of the social networks known for having all the bells and whistles. In fact, only until recently, it didn’t have an applications platform, an ad network, or other features that make sites like Facebook and MySpace so popular.
