Just as there's WhatsApp for chatting with your friends, there's Caliber, a business app for professional networking.

Caliber is described as a crossover between WhatsApp and LinkedIn, serving as a place to connect with business contacts through an instant messaging system versus email. By filtering out personal contacts, this helps conversations on Caliber to be strictly professional. When it comes to searching for a specific contact, users are able to filter by search results like skills, company and location. To keep the employment information that's displayed on the app as updated as possible, Caliber is synced with LinkedIn.

A growing number of business apps like Caliber and Facebook at Work are showing that social media and mobile phone use in the workplace is not only becoming accepted, but encouraged.
