New software collects all of your network and places them in one place
Staying in contact with yourprofessional network just got easier.
Yesterday, LinkedIn launched “LinkedIn Contacts,” a new smartphone and desktop app that makes it easier to strengthen your professional connections.
LinkedIn Contacts allows users to collect their professional contacts from various locations such as email, address books, calendars, Cardmunch and LinkedIn.
The app shows these contacts on various filters such as the people you have most recently spoken to, those you have lost contact with, and your newest contacts.
Other features include an algorithm to make sure you don’t get spammers, reminders to reach out to someone you haven’t contacted in a while, birthday notifications, the ability to add notes to people’s profiles, and a relationship history.
Although ‘Contacts’ is currently only available for the iPhone and as a desktop app, LinkedIn also plans to launch an Android app and mobile web experience.
