Wish LinkedIn would remind you to wish your favorite client a happy birthday? LinkedIn has introduced a new feature called LinkedIn Contacts, to help users better manage their relationships with their professional contacts. Call it CRM for professional networkers.
Using the tool, LinkedIn users can bring together contacts from their address books, email account, and calendar. This information is overlaid with details about past conversations and meetings on that contact’s profile.
Here is more from the LinkedIn blog: “Get alerted on job changes and birthdays in your network, a perfect opportunity to stay in touch. Also, you can set reminders and add notes about the important people in your life.”
