I know I responded to your private case regarding this but I wanted to follow up on this discussion in case someone else came across it and had the same question.
At the end of last year, we began to announce the removal of the LinkedIn feature in Jive Web Application and Office Connector. This change was effective as of December 31, 2014.
As a communication and collaboration hub Jive puts people at the centre and we continuously make investments to support that strategy. Along that journey, in an effort to provide richer people profiles, we implemented the LinkedIn integration feature about two years ago. But as we monitored customer adoption and usage over the years, we found those metrics to be very low.
