LinkedIn to retire LinkedIn Intro on March 7th

Posted Feb 8, 2014

LinkedIn has sent an e-mail to users to warn them about LinkedIn Intro being retired. LinkedIn Intro was announced in October 2013. Apparently, the service received a lot of negative feedback.

LinkedIn Intro automatically inserted the contact information into your iPhone Mail app. The service scanned the e-mailed and added LInkedIn contact details as HTML. This technology seems to have been inspired by LinkedIn’s acquisition of Rapportive.
