A friend of mine stopped by the office today and told me that he had a pile of business cards to scan in. One of the tasks I do whenever I’m on the road is to take my business cards I accumulate during the day and I connect with them via LinkedIn that evening in the hotel. I actually never come home with a business card. Everyone I’ve ever met utilizes LinkedIn as their B2B network, but I’m not sure too many folks truly leverage the family of mobile applications that LinkedIn has published.
LinkedIn Mobile Application
The LinkedIn App makes it easy to connect and grow your network, engage with professional content and gain insights right from the stream. The new intelligent navigation is personalized just for you based on how you use LinkedIn everyday. (iOS, Droid)
LinkedIn Cardmunch Mobile App
Few people realize that LinkedIn purchased a card reading app a little over a year ago. CardMunch 3.0 by LinkedIn is an app that turns your business cards into contacts with LinkedIn integration. Easily see LinkedIn profile information for your new contacts — and connect with them in a single click. (iOS, Droid coming soon)
LinkedIn Contacts Mobile App
LinkedIn Contacts is a smart way to stay in touch with your most important relationships. Bring all your contacts together in one app, get alerted on job changes and birthdays in your network, and discover more about who you’re meeting with. (iOS)
