LinkedIn Today: The Professional Networking Site Tries Its Hand At News (WebNewser)

Professional networking site LinkedIn is making its entry into the news arena, announcing the beta launch of LinkedIn Today, which aggregates the most-shared headlines related to multiple industries by members of the network. Silicon Alley Insider: LinkedIn Today could help LinkedIn earn more money from advertising as it prepares for its initial public offering this year. NYT / Bits: LinkedIn Today will compete with other general news aggregators, like Google News or Yahoo! News, as well as those that are tailored to a specific industry, like Techmeme, for technology. ReadWriteWeb:It’s hard to see how the curation that will happen on LinkedIn will be different from what happens on other social-network sites, as many people simply duplicate their shares from Twitter, blogs, or feeds to their LinkedIn profiles.
