Great mod ! As we know Linkedin is the first professional social network with more than 100 million of members; This is an oppotunity to simplify join and save time for Linkedin members willing join your site. This mod work very well and easy to install. Deanos is a good and trusted vendor :: Good support and always available for help. I recommand this mod to everybody. I also purchased Facebook and Google connect from him that work very fine. Linkedin Connect + Facebook connect+ Google Connect= see more More members and quick Return on investment
All i have to say is damn!! This is a very much needed mod for your site. Gives it a whole new look. As for the service very quick and Deano provides everything well detailed. Nice Job!
Hey folks, just purchased the Linkedin Mod v1.0.4 about an hour ago and got it done within an hour. Deano's step-by-step installation are very straight forward and not to mention the tutorial video he provided is very helpful as well. I also purchased FB connect yesterday, I had some questions & they were answered promptly. As result, I got the FB connect done successfully as well.

I just can't ask for a better service than this and not to mention the high quality of his products. I will see more certainly purchase more Mods from Deano in near future..
