Do you have a LinkedIn account? Do you post updates or stories of interest for your “connections” to read? Are you interested in news that your colleagues are reading? Well, earlier this month, LinkedIn announced the launch of LinkedIn Today.
The press release describes it as a “product that surfaces the top headlines and stories being shared the most across multiple industries by LinkedIn’s trusted network of professionals. LinkedIn Today gives members a customized and tailored way to consume the top trending news relevant to a particular industry and by what is being shared the most frequently by those industry’s professionals.”
There are a variety of specific industries and news sources an individual can monitor. Unfortunately, it does not appear legal news is one of them. Topics available include banking, health care, insurance, real estate, IT, marketing and several others. News sources range from Bloomberg to USA Today and from the Economist to SlashFilm.com.
There is an excellent post and discussion on this issue over at Bob Ambrogi’s LawSites blog.
