LinkedIn is without doubt the key social network for business professionals. A few months back 6.5 million members had their passwords compromised and LinkedIn was quick to take action.
I love LinkedIn. At the time of this post, I am nearing 1,000 connections there. Unlike generic social networking sites like Facebook, LinkedIn has managed to maintain its niche of being a business connections site.
LinkedIn in the UK has reached yet another major benchmark by crossing the 10 million mark. It represents their third largest market after the US and India. LinkedIn has more than 175 million members currently globally.
Over the past few months LinkedIn has been undergoing major changes in its design. The site has a cleaner interface. Adding people is also easier and you only need to scroll down to load more potential contacts.
If you're a regular LinkedIn user and keep in touch with your contacts regularly, Hookflash makes this a breeze. Hookflash will allow you to make video calls, voice calls and messaging with any of your LinkedIn contacts around the world by using just your Wifi connection. If you have the iPad with Wifi and 3G/4G, then you can use your 3G or 4G network to call.
By now, most the WWW is abuzz with the security compromise at Linkedin. It is good to note that the team at Linkedin have been quick to respond and have blocked all the compromised accounts requiring you to reset your Linkedin password. Affected users have also been informed by email.
