If you run your business from a Mac, get ready for LinkedIn features built right into your operating system.
To get started, just sign into LinkedIn from the Internet Accounts pane, found under System Preferences in Mavericks.
Here are some of the new ways you can take advantage of LinkedIn to network and grow your business.
- LinkedIn is now built into the Contacts application in Mavericks. The app now integrates your business contacts alongside your friends, family and acquaintances. Once you opt in, Mavericks will fetch a profile photo, phone numbers, email addresses and location information from your LinkedIn connections list. Your LinkedIn contacts will appear in a list separate from other contacts.
- LinkedIn is also integrated with the Notification Center in Mavericks, which can now notify you of incoming invitations to connect, messages, likes and comments.
- Users can change their LinkedIn profile photo by uploading a photo straight from the Photo Booth application in Mavericks.
- LinkedIn is also newly integrated into Safari, the default Web browser in Mavericks. The browser now features a “Shared Links” section built into the browser’s sidebar, right next to your bookmarks. The pane lets you share links and view links shared by LinkedIn users you follow.
