There are ten new applications in total with more to come I’m sure.

Highlighted LinkedIn Applications:

WordPress Application: If you maintain a blog on the WordPress platform, you can now add it to your LinkedIn profile and ensure your network is connected straightaway to your blog. A great way to keep your business contacts informed about you and your company activities.

Company Buzz: This can be used to monitor you, or your company name, in terms of being able to track who’s saying what about you on Twitter. This can develop into showing you trends and even has the ability to drill down into related terms. The phrase matching, e.g. “koozai” isn’t perfect but a useful monitoring tool never-the-less.

Huddle Workspaces: This service allows any LinkedIn member to collaborate online with any of their contacts. Supported by RSS feeds to monitor progress, this is a handy way to create projects.

In addition, there are apps to share blogs, document files, presentations, reading lists and even your travel plans!

This is an innovative step forward and has enhanced LinkedIn still further.
