LinkedIn Launches New Contacts Feature and App

Today, LinkedIn (NYSE: LNKD  ) introduced a new feature called LinkedIn Contacts, which brings together all of a user's contacts, conversations, and important notes on their colleagues and friends. The company said in blog post today that LinkedIn Contacts is, "a smarter way to stay in touch with your most important relationships." 

The new online feature, and stand-alone iPhone app, pulls contacts from a user's email accounts, calendars, and address books and then adds the information into LinkedIn Contacts. LinkedIn members can then view conversations, see when they previously met with the contact, and add notes to their contacts. LinkedIn Contacts can also be set to remind users of job changes, birthdays, and other reasons to stay in touch with their contacts.

LinkedIn currently has a wait list set up for the new feature, but the iPhone app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store today. The company said that invitations will be sent to a limited number of U.S. LinkedIn members in the coming weeks.
