LinkedIn Adds Applications

LinkedIn has long been called Facebook for Business. Well it just stepped a little bit closer. On October 28, 2008 LinkedIn added applications. Fortunately, these aren’t useless time wasters like most of Facebook’s applications. Most of them actually add some interesting functionality. For example, one application connects your LinkedIn profile to your WordPress Blog. Another lets you embed presentations into your profile. 

(I wonder how long it will be until we hear about someone getting fired because they posted a company presentation that was only meant for internal use.)
