Using LinkedIn for Contact Management

LinkedIn logoLinkedIn has been on a roll in the last year, tweaking its services and recently, I got my first look at the changes they have made to Contacts.

The social networking site has now made it easy to bring together all of your address books, emails and calendars and keep them up to date in one place. It’s designed to help improve how you stay in touch with your LinkedIn connections. For instance, you’ll get notifications when someone changes jobs, or has a birthday, so you can send them a greeting right away.

The change is especially noticeable when you visit your contacts’ profile pages. Directly underneath their profile picture, there is a new box that indicates your relationship to the person, and includes areas where you can write a note, set a reminder, and indicate how you met. This is priceless for keeping track of prospects that you meet at a networking event. Even though you’re adding this information underneath someone else’s profile, the information is visible only to you:

LinkedIn contacts

LinkedIn has a new contacts app available on iPhone, but there’s no mention of Android yet. I hope they will come up with one soon, because I would love to try it out on my phone!

Watch your email for the invite from LinkedIn. I almost missed mine, since the subject line contained the number “2” and nothing else! (I’m sure this was a mistake.) I think these new features are an excellent enhancement to the service.
