Not necessarily, and you make a great point - I've shared posts I've written here on it, so it does not have to be a LI post. But it does confirm some level knowledge, much like the answers feature did.

Do you really need to write to appear like you have an active profile? I feel like plenty of people are doing sharing as the way to get noticed ... sharing and commenting on other people's posts.

It all falls back to the opt out and how well it is designed in a mobile application.  Seem to always fall to it, does it?

Did not know that about Pulse, but you are right about the uproar about Q&A being dropped - it helped build the community to an extent, and let people discover the depths of their knowledge.  It was difference between a dormant profile and one with active support. Today it's not entirely clear unless the person writes a post regularly. Not everyone writes.

I think maybe we're being a little sensitive. Sure, it's accessing your contacts and phone info, but don't all social media do that now? Facebook and LinkedIn are constantly trying to get you to allow access to your mail. It's a way for them to grow their matrix, but it's also helpful for us, the users. So I don't think we should be that freaked out about it.

@MN it might have been ok if I'd known about the setting before I updated the app. I had to look it up to find out how to turn it off.

Wow, that IS creepy. I don't think I'd mind, though, if I opted in and was alerted to these possibilities beforehand. A clean and updated contact list is one thing I still dream to have, and there's no way that's going to happen without social network integrationn.

I wish I could say integration would be appealing to me, but it's not. LinkedIn synced with my phone contacts when I updated the app once and I didn't like it at all. LinkedIn started suggesting connections based on calendar information and recent phone calls. It was creepy.

Right, joe, which led to all the talk in the past few years of startup bubbles, followed by most VCs coming to their senses and the funding scene getting a lot harder for founders with only dollar sign eyes and not real viable and innovative business plans.

@tinym One thing I like about an integration between LinkedIn and Outlook is better contacts management. I tend not to manage my Google contacts well anymore because I can reach people easily on Facebook. Now if LinkedIn, Facebook, and Outlook contacts integrate into one database, I'd be compelled to use Microsoft's CRM offerings. I don't think they offer a CRM product for small and micro businesses just yet, but if they eventually do, it'll be an easy sell.
