Note that you must convince LinkedIn management that your application
adds significant value before they will work with you. I quote from
their web site:

"How to develop for the Platform

“The LinkedIn application platform is not publicly available for all
developers. We evaluate requests to develop for the LinkedIn platform
from partners who have clearly compelling value to our users and who
can rigorously follow our privacy policies. We are looking for
applications that provide clear business utility to LinkedIn users.
LinkedIn is not a place for sheep throwing. There is equal opportunity
to build applications that apply to all LinkedIn users as there is to
develop applications that apply to just a targeted portion of the user
base. If you think you qualify and have a compelling user value
proposition, let us know using the form below.”

Note the key phrases “partners who have clearly compelling value to
our users”, “clear business utility to LinkedIn users”, and “have a
compelling user value proposition”. In short, be prepared to clearly
demonstrate a value add to LinkedIn before putting any effort into

LinkedIn isn’t Twitter, and “any old hacker who can code to an API”
isn’t going to get on their approved list. For that matter, I suspect
it’s only a matter of time before Twitter adopts a similar policy.

I’ve never met a happy clam. In fact, most of them were pretty steamed.

I am new to integrate the social media linkedin in our ruby on rails
application.I registered the application in linkedin developer
website,but I don’t know how to integrate that in our application using
authentication from scratch(without using devise). I used “gem linkedin”
and configured the api-key & secrete-key.Please any one help me to do
with step by step procedure.

Thanks in advance

Thank you for the topic. That was very useful for me.

it doesn’t work with LinkedIn, right?

It doesn’t work with LinkedIn, right? Also since you know a little about LinkedIn, can someone advise me a tool that will post scheduled posts/info on this social network or just look at this one and tell me if it works and you tried it?

thank you in advance!
