LinkedIn has introduced a news aggregation service called LinkedIn Today. This delivers a personalized news experience, letting you quickly discover the top headlines of the day based around what your connections and industry peers are reading and sharing.
Well this really isn’t much of a surprise, but it is a feature I think is long overdue. Anyone that has a large network will tell you that it’s difficult to keep up with what everyone thinks is important. We started receiving emails with the ‘top stories’ from our networks some time ago. I really thought that new email was helpful. Now if they can merge in my delicious and stumbledupon and (name your tagging tool here) to this mix and make it contextual based on something you also have deemed important then we are well on our way to heading to web 3.0, in my opinion.
Either way, this is a welcome add on to LinkedIn and I look forward to the tool’s growth in capability and features.
