Job-seeking professionals to network on the move

Social networking site LinkedIn is extending its service from desktop PCs to mobile phones and iPods.

LinkedIn's 19 million members can now view other members' profiles, invitations and updates via the company's Wap site, which went live yesterday in six languages.

A specially tailored version has also been made available for iPhone users.

"We want to help professionals network and the more information you have to do the job the better," said Kevin Eyres, European managing director at LinkedIn.

"I think we will see a large number of our users pick this up. It is quick, convenient and there is nothing to install."

The move follows similar efforts from Bebo, Facebook and MySpace.
