Personally, I never used LinkedIn to hire somebody or to find a job, but I know many people that use it frequently. It has some sort of a charisma, I’ll agree with that. LinkedIn has recently redesigned both the Android and the iPhone applications, making a clear bet on the fact that people will use the service on the go. There are some similarities between the redesigned Android app and the iOS one, as the new app brings larger photos, a left-hand sliding panel. Also, overall, LinkedIn’s overhauled Android app feels much faster.
