  • Thanks for sharing this journey of the mobile product at LinkedIn.

    One feature I would really like to see is the ability to send personal message to people ou are looking to connect with on the mobile app - as i am sure you appreciate, adding a personal message is good LinkedIn etiquette - I know I would use the mobile products more often if this feature was available.

  • As we have mainstreamed with over 238M members we start to see the professionals have different needs On the desktop we’ve grown our site to accommodate these different needs, but mobile works differently because you have less realestate and it’s being driven with one thumb and one eyeThe magic of mobile apps is to keep simple simpleI have a 5 second rule. If I download an app I give it 5 seconds to try to understand what it does. Our desktop site has over 3,700 unique page types. But we can’t just stuff them into our app. It won’t work. So we are building a suite of apps to make professionals more productive and successfulJust like Microsoft has it’s office suite, or Apple has the iLife suite. We have our own suite of mobile apps

  • Let’s talk about our suite of mobile apps.Our cornerstone app is our flagship app. It’s like a swiss army knife for the general professional. In the same say the swiss army knife has knives, screwdriver, and a can opener. We have a professional stream, an Inbox, advanced search and news content.Contacts app. It’s designed for the outbound professional -- people whose job it is to meet with new people each day. People in sales, BD, realtors and journalists. The app consolidates all your contacts into one place and helps you be brilliant with people by reminding you of birthdays, work anniversaries, job changes and lots more.Pulse app came to us via an acquisition in April. Pulse is an amazing news app with over 30M users. It allows you to read news tailored for you anytime: on a commute, waiting in a grocery line, in between meetings. With Pulse LinkedIn is building the definitive professional publishing platform where professionals come to consume news and publishers come to share their content. Recruiter app was just unveiled last week. It’s designed for recruiters who use our talent solutions product. Recruiters shouldn’t be chained to their desktops. In addition to recruiters, we’ve invested heavily to bring the whole recruiting process to mobile. For example, this past year we added several jobs features to the flagship app including: jobs search, jobs recommendations and the ability to immediately apply for a job from mobile. Today, over 30% of LI jobs views come from our mobile flagship app.Finally we have a new, new thing we are announcing today. It’s a brand new way of thinking about mobile for us. It’s sweet and you’ll see it here first.
