If you’ve been to just about any website with a comments section lately, you’ll have probably seen the ability to log in through a social media site such as Facebook, LinkedIn (News - Alert) or Twitter.
Well, LinkedIn integration has just taken another step forward, as it’s become integrated with Blue Jeans, a cloud-based video conferencing service.
This integration makes it easier for users to sign up and log in, and create an account that draws information directly from their LinkedIn profile to skip the monotonous information entry process.
Users can also directly view the LinkedIn profiles of participants from the in-meeting list, providing instant access to the work information of whoever may be in the video chat.
LinkedIn is a social networking site useful for keeping colleagues, associates, employers and job seekers connected. Blue Jeans moves video collaboration beyond specialized conference rooms, bridging business and consumer video conferencing solutions to improve collaboration and video communications for up to 25 people in a single chat.
Given the target market the two share, it’s natural that they integrate in such a way; this will not only make it easier for Blue Jeans users to log in to their profile, but also to find each other on LinkedIn during or after the meetings.
Of course, Blue Jeans is not the first video website to do this. Websites such as TinyChat have had the option to log in via Facebook (News - Alert) for a while now, but those are plagued with connectivity issues, and are much more casual – certainly not useful for business videoconferences.
Blue Jeans and LinkedIn, on the other hand, are both quality services with a focus on jobs and professional business, making them the perfect partners for improved convenience and service on both ends.
