LinkedIn is so out in the cold when it comes to linking to other social networking applications that I have been struggling to find anything that will update my status in LinkedIn. At last I have discovered Ping.fmWith one entry it can update all your sites or just those set for status, microblog or blog updates. I have set Twitter and LinkedIn as status updates so that I can post a status entry in Ping.fm and it will update Twitter and LinkedIn. Then of course Twitter updates the rest.
My WordPress blog already shows my Twitter feed but I wanted new blog posts to automatically create a Twitter entry. So I have now set up Twitterfeedto create a Twitter entry by taking the title of my new blog entry and the link to the blog entry. It needs to use Feedburner to access my blog and it can create a short URL using TinyURLOnce set up, it does all this automatically.
