Social networks aren’t going away anytime soon – and the mobile space is the next frontier. Following on Facebook’s mobile version launch recently, the professional social network LinkedIn has announced that they have gone mobile. The LinkedIn mobile site is available at http://m.linkedin.com/ – and if you use your iPhone to visit the mobile version, you’ll see an iPhone-optimized website.
LinkedIn is made for professionals to make the same kind of social-network contacts that Facebook and MySpace allows, but without all that spammy nonesense that tends to follow the teenage-demographic. Make contacts, set up real-life meetings, read-up on a colleague’s qualifications – LinkedIn replaces the old-school face-to-face networking and business-card swapping that many corporate types are probably used to.
To that end, iPhones may not be the corporate-email-compatible handset of choice among professionals, but if any of your business-users couldn’t resist the draw of the iPhone, you’ll find a nice iPhone interface at LinkedIn’s new mobile site.
Point your mobile web browser to http://m.linkedin.com/ to try out the mobilized LinkedIn website.
