Matt’s App of the Week: LinkedIn Contacts


Share on LinkedIn

This is the latest in a series of weekend posts highlighting a wide variety of applications we think are pretty cool. Most have to do with sales, marketing and productivity. Check out past featured apps here.

I’m pretty excited about what LinkedIn has done to their Contacts section. As of a few weeks ago, your LinkedIn contacts were, well, whatever contacts you had first connections with in LinkedIn.

Now, you can aggregate all of your social connections from Facebook, Google, Yahoo, Outlook and more in one place.

And from that one place, you can now get an aggregated, single view of trigger events, buying signals and other life changes – promotions, title changes, job changes, birthdays and more.

LinkedIn will send you an email every morning summarizing these trigger events and life changes, based on contacts from across your social network.
