The apps you use certainly are.
Yesterday, Hootsuite announced that they will be having a broader integration with LinkedIn for their enterprise clients to beta test.
What level of integration will go into the free and pro version remains to be seen, but it seems LinkedIn as become a priority for the company.

Klout got into the LinkedIn game, integrating early this summer. According to Klout CEO and co-founder Joe Fernandez:
"LinkedIn has been one of our biggest requests from users...It's clear that people put a huge value on their business connections and we are thrilled to be able to include activities and connections from LinkedIn in calculating the Klout score."
