It looks like LinkedIn wants to become your defacto Rolodex, the one place where all your contacts details are stored and synced with other applications ( A pseudo CRM ?)
This new feature sets up LinkedIn to become the one stop shop for managing contacts and leads and enable tracking of your relation with a contact .
Business development managers/Sales Men and even recruiters are going to love this !!!
- Save Notes about Your Contacts
- Set Reminders to stay in touch
- Notes on how you met
- Tag with Key words
Remember conversations with contacts outside on LinkedIn by adding contact source like email,contact list and Calender
Sync with outlook ,Card Munch,Evernote , so all the interactions records of that contact outside of LinkedIn is in one place
Now after testing to see the uptake on the new contact feature , the next steps i believe for LinkedIn is presenting users with intelligence based on the data provided of contacts …
