LinkedIn Now Has iPad App – Backup Your LinkedIn Contacts With SocialSafe

Yesterday saw the release of the LinkedIn iPad app, as well as updated and revamped versions of its existing iPhone and Android apps. As of February 2012, the service had in excess of 150m users across the world. Now that the experience is available in iPad format, it stands to reason that there may be another surge in sign-ups.

If you want details of what the LinkedIn iPad app has to offer, then I’ll just direct you to Mashable instead of reproducing what they’ve written: LinkedIn Launches iPad App, Takes New Direction.

As soon as a user populated service is available (or in this case,more readilyavailable) in mobile format it is a fair assumption that the rate of content creation will increase. Anyone who is a regular reader of this blog will probably have worked out where I’m going with this… Who looks after this data you create and what happens if it disappears?

While there is an increasing number of business related accounts on Facebook and Twitter (which can all be backed up with SocialSafe), LinkedIn remains the exclusively business orientated social network. If you were to temporarily lose access or worse still suffer permanent deletion of your business contacts then this can have dire consequences.

Enterprise and Pro users of SocialSafe have the ability to backup LinkedIn contacts, updates and profile (we’re working on backing up groups in SocialSafe v6.5) to their own PC or Mac. This video shows just how simple it is to backup a LinkedIn profile and what you can actually do with you data once it is downloaded:

If you’d like to backup your LinkedIn profile then visit the SocialSafe website to start your offline digital journal today. Be sure to look at the Features section to see what else you can backup from your Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram and Viadeo accounts.

  7. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off? I’d really appreciate it.
