Who are you connected to?
We have introduced new mini-tiles on the Contact’s business card so you can see at a quick glance who you are connected to on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook. When you have entered the correct information in the corresponding field on the contact record the tile for the social network will light up. By clicking on any of the active mini-tiles, you will be redirected to the corresponding page on a separate tab in your browser. Here is an example of a fully connected business card for Nic Cary:

Here is an example of Nic Cary’s Profile Page with an arrow to clearly call out the inclusion of this new feature:
Let us know what you think of these new features. We plan to more deeply integrate with each of these sites in the coming months depending on how our user base starts using these fields. Give them a try and then send us some feedback.
