This, of course, implies something that's perhaps obvious to tech insiders: No one really wanted to use LinkedIn on the go before. I had to try four passwords before I could

remember how to log into my account when I downloaded the app for this story. People tend to check LinkedIn's site every now and then -- unlike Facebook and Twitter, which people update constantly, and from all over the place.

LinkedIn is the third largest online social network, with 120 million users compared to pack leader Facebook, which has 750 million. Twitter has more than 175 million users.

The company's mobile products have seen a 400% increase in traffic since this time last year, LinkedIn says in a blog post Tuesday, without giving the total mobile traffic number, or its mobile user stats.

A video promoting the new app says the mobile version of LinkedIn will give the suits "meeting intelligence."

"You can quickly search for someone's LinkedIn profile before walking into a meeting," the video says. "The profile will show connections you have in common, and a bit about their background, including companies they worked at, schools they attended and recent updates. These kind of insights can break the ice for any first meeting."

Many folks involved in social media are so ADD driven to the latest social network, they fail to fully explore and make use of the networks that they are already part of.
