Say what you will about certain social networks, LinkedIn is the one basically all of us can agree isn't any fun to use. That's not its purpose. We go there either to get a job or to tell everyone about the job we just got. It's easy for people with stable employment to end up with profiles as current as their Myspace pages.
When the time does come to give the profile a quick touch-up, the latest version of the Android app hopes to make that experience just a bit nicer.
