xobni – linkedin integration

I have been using Xobni for a while now – it integrates with Outlook and shows you your social network based on your emails. As per my post previously on Xobni, it isn’t the complete tool yet – I feel for it to stay as a long term addition to Outlook it really needs to add more productivity benefits which still aren’t there.

But it has added integration with LinkedIn now which means I can get info from LinkedIn on people I email and I can remove my LinkedIn addon for Outlook 🙂 That is no detriment to LinkedIn really as Xobni still diverts me to LinkedIn’s website.

Overall though whilst its a nice addition, it isnt giving me much in the way of overall productivity gains. It does look nice and I get to know who I have sent over 2000 emails to..
