LinkedIn is one among those social networking sites that we have a profile or page on, the only difference being that this is completely professional. The Professional social network LinkedIn is also available in the form of an application just like Facebook and Twitter.
LinkedIn app for Nokia brings all the same features available on the website on to your mobile device and helps you stay in touch with all your connections, also it’s available for free on the Ovi Store.
LinkedIn has over 100 million members, everyone from Apple to Micromax has a LinkedIn profile. This is important, and the LinkedIn App for Nokia makes things even better for all those professionals on the network. Using this application on your Nokia device will enable you to send/receive messages, add new members, accept/decline invitations, browse profiles, search connections, share status updates and so on. You see how this helps a professional to be in touch with another professional, talk about the meeting or share ideas and stuff.
There is a minor complication however, the LinkedIn app is currently only available for certain Nokia phones, well, only 3 of them to be precise. The Nokia N8, Nokia E7 and Nokia C6 are considered to be professional phones I suppose, because if you have one, then you can use the LinkedIn App by downloading it from the Ovi Store. I know, that’s a major complication, not a minor one, but it will be available on other Nokia phones soon enough.
Hari V. Krishnan, Country Manager, LinkedIn India said;
The growing number of professionals in India is a major factor in driving the adoption of mobile phones here to over 600 million users. Today’s professionals seek connectivity on the go and the availability of LinkedIn for Nokia’s wide range of smartphones provides an apt solution to this demand. Through this application, we will continue to connect talent to opportunity, making professionals productive and successful.
It’d be weird to ask your Boss “Are you on Facebook?”, hence asking connecting with your Boss on LinkedIn makes it simpler by keeping it strictly professional. Download LinkedIn app for your Nokia N8, E7 or C6 from the Ovi Store using this link.
Are you a LinkedIn user? If so, do you use it while on the move?
