Microsoft brings LinkedIn to Windows Live
With over 75 million members in over 200 countries and a new professional joining approximately every second, LinkedIn is clearly a leader in professional social networking that we’re excited to partner with. There are four key areas we’re focused on in our deep integration with LinkedIn:
* Keeping your contact list organized with auto contact linking across Hotmail, Messenger and the rest of Windows Live.
* Helping you use Messenger to keep up with what your LinkedIn contacts are doing.
* Making it simple to share updates from Messenger to your LinkedIn contacts.
* Helping your Messenger friends keep up with what you’re doing on LinkedIn.
With nearly 50% of users actively using 2 or more social networks, linking social networks together becomes a messy business for your contact list if not handled with care. Your contact list can become easily flooded with duplicate records for the same person from the contact details you already have, their Facebook or MySpace friend details, and now their professional contact information from LinkedIn.
When you make the LinkedIn connection with Windows Live, your LinkedIn contacts are automatically linked to the same contact you already have stored in Windows Live, so that you have one record with the combined set of information. Now you can compose and send email to your LinkedIn contacts right from Hotmail.
