BBM-Connected Status Updates
BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) has always been an integral component of the BlackBerry platform, providing a valuable communication tool for messaging between friends and business users alike. With the launch of version 2.2, the LinkedIn app for BlackBerry is now integrated with BBM. This allows you to share your LinkedIn posts with your BBM contacts, maximizing the experience over both networks. You will also see LinkedIn updates reflected on the “BBM Recent Updates” screen.
LinkedIn is a great channel for connecting with companies and receiving information on their products and services, resources, job openings, and other updates. The LinkedIn 2.2 update on BlackBerry enables you to follow the companies you’re interested in by subscribing to LinkedIn company pages.
To download LinkedIn 2.2 for BlackBerry, head on over to the BlackBerry World store front. Note that it may take up to 24 hours for the app to appear, depending on your location. Also, make sure you’re following the BlackBerry company page on LinkedIn for the latest BlackBerry news!
