LinkedIn the professional network services has launched "LinkedIn Today," that delivers the day's top news, tailored to you based on what your connections and industry peers are reading and sharing. If you only have five minutes to catch up on news, LinkedIn Today can help you cut through all the clutter, so you can discover the top headlines you need to read to be better informed everyday.
LinkedIn Today is unique because it gives you three social views of professional news that don't exist together in one place anywhere else on the web. We can deliver news that matter to your connections, your industry peers, and the wider professional audience.
The creation of LinkedIn Groups and Twitter integration made LinkedIn somewhat more "engaging" and increased usage frequency. Now LinkedIn Today has the capacity to dramatically increase usage and create a new daily (or more frequent) news habit.
The site is totally algorithmically generated; there are no humans involved. Users can follow news publications/blogs or industries. Their contacts and connections also help determine what items gets surfaced on the site.
