LinkedIn Update – Action Required

Hey Everyone. Last night I updated the LinkedIn API leenk.me was using. This was required by LinkedIn, they are turning off their old oAuth 1.0 API and have recently brought up a new oAuth 2.0 API.

Facebook did this last year (if you don’t remember). This will require you to log into your account at http://leenk.me/ and remove your LinkedIn account, then re-add it. You should not need to do anything else, but you may want to visit the “manage your API keys” section to verify that your API key(s) have the proper LinkedIn settings.

Sorry for any convenience, unfortunately it was a requirement from LinkedIn. As always, let me know if you have any trouble. Also, I have been getting a few requests to update to LinkedIn Company pages. Unfortunately, this is not currently allowed with LinkedIn. As soon as it is allowed, I will add it to the plugin.

I am in the process of rebuilding the leenk.me site and the leenk.me plugin. It is going to be even easier to manage your connections! I hope to have the website finished in the next couple months and leenk.me 3.0 out by the end of the year. I am also planning on adding Tumblr to the plugin and I have been considering removing Friendfeed (I do not know anyone who actually uses Friendfeed). So, please tell me what you think!

Thank you!

      As soon as Google opens up their Google+ API for writing to 3rd party add-ons :)

        Any idea when they might open it up?

        • Lew Ayotte says:

          No idea, they’ve had it closed from the start and 3rd party developers have been very annoyed. They actually do have a write API, and they gave access to 6 large companies (like HootSuite). But us little guys are still waiting. Basically, they’re afraid of opening it up like they did with Google Buzz (at least that’s my understanding).
