Couple of thinks about the clucnky interfac e with Linked In that bug me...
Seems like every time I log in it wants me to share my email contacts... and acts as though I've never provided them before.
I have it on my Android phone, my Nexus 7 and my laptop... when I change something on one, like responding to a message or writing one, it doesn't update the others for several hours.
It's just not very user-friendly.
My son-in-law is involved in a startup company called www.identified.com
. They hope to provide a friendlier, more intuitive interface (they get users to voluntarily offer up Facebook profile info) but it seems like they're mostly focused on employers looking for qualified job seekers, and people looking for jobs.
Someone ought to come up with a better user experience for businesses trying to network with clients and prospects.
