use the following link;

http://www.linkedin.com/static?key=press_releases_121007_2

I donot believe linked in programming API's are that popular yet; but they are going in a direction to compete with facebook. or email at developer@linkedin.com

You can try to contact LinkedIn directly for info but you also need permission from them.  What you want to do is prohibited in their Terms of Use (see the Access to Service section).  We would not be able to help you with specifics of how to use a script, etc to get the info you want.

Let me know if you have a question or need more info.

Unfortunately the Xing.com site has a similar prohibition in its Terms of Use.  You should contact Xing.com too if you want to see if they will allow you an exemption from the rule.

Of course not all sites do and there are ways to get info from web pages.  ASP.NET isn't my expertise but I believe the HttpWebRequest object (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.net.httpwebrequest.aspx) is commonly used to get page content (i.e. like ASPTear or PHP's cUrl).
