LinkedIn wants to make exchanging numbers and emails easier for professionals on-the-fly with a scannable Quick Response code.
Can I grab your QR?
The time of scrambling for a pen or thumb-fumbling details into a mobile have passed, now professionals can swap contact info lightning fast with unique QR codes.
According to LinkedIn, the new code system is for “making it easy to build your professional community and keep the conversation going.”
Though not a ground-breaking function, it does make grabbing someone’s info less of a chore when you’re late for a meeting, or just out the door.
How it works
To access the new function simply tap the QR icon found in the top right corner of your search bar, bringing up a small thumbnail of your profile picture above a mid-sized QR code.
Now, the other party can simply snap a picture of your code. To get even more flexible, users can share QR via email, text, or simply saving it to photos on their device.
Quick Response codes are nothing new, found on everything from cereal boxes to ticket stubs, Could LinkedIn finally bring it into the business world?
