(Updated April 2, 2013)
Xobni (& Smartr) products have displayed LinkedIn profile information about your contacts since 2008, and people worldwide have found this feature to be useful and insightful. Unfortunately, LinkedIn has decided that their data will not appear in any Xobni products as of April 2, 2013. Specifically:
Xobni for Outlook
- Photos and job titles from LinkedIn no longer appear in the "business card" area.
- LinkedIn gadget no longer shows data from LinkedIn (how to hide the LinkedIn gadget)
- Photos and job titles from LinkedIn will no longer appear.
- LinkedIn data will no longer appear in the "social updates" tab for each contact.
What now for job-related information?
In the meantime, we have taken action to replace LinkedIn information for you with other sources such as Facebook, Twitter, Gravatar, and email signatures. Over the past few years, Facebook has prompted its users to input more job-related information, and many people put their current job in the Twitter "bio" section. Over time this data in Xobni products will continue to improve and supplant information that previously came from LinkedIn.
How can I provide feedback?
