LinkedIn Contacts looks to boost relationships

Keep track of professional contacts with LinkedIn's new app, hide from Facebook's green dots, and doodle in new ways with Draw Something 2.

CNET Update has much to say:


It's hard to remember everything. Apps can help. And LinkedIn's Contacts app wants to help make sure you remember more about your professional contacts.

If you're trying to make it in the business world but don't have time for networking and schmoozing, just pay a ton of money for the chance to become BFFs with Apple's CEO Tim Cook. Coffee is included.

Talking to people can be hard, but Facebook doesn't want you to be shy. It's encouraging more messaging by throwing green dots all over the place. And while you're on Facebook, be sure to brag about your muscles with thenew FuelBand app photo-tagging features.

If you don't have muscles, there are other things to talk about. Like how Nintendo doesn't have much to say for E3. Being funny is also a good way to start a conversation. Watch old SNL skits on Yahoo and steal jokes to impress friends. If talking just doesn't work, show off your doodle skills on Draw Something 2.
