LinkedIn Turns Flipboard Into a Social Magazine for Professional NewsA frequently requested addition to Flipboard, LinkedIn now helps professionals stay connected to relevant industry news. Similar to Twitter and Facebook sections in Flipboard that are based on friends, LinkedIn?s 100 million members can now view news they care about most based on what their professional peers are sharing and reading through LinkedIn Today.
Additionally, readers can view LinkedIn Today?s many industry sections in Flipboard - these select industry news pages curated by LinkedIn?s professional members offer a snapshot of what other professionals in that industry are reading. There are more than 30 industry sections, including real estate, retail, pharmaceuticals, and higher education.
“We want to enable professionals to be great at what they do and LinkedIn is surfacing relevant and timely news to help our members make smarter business decisions everyday," said Deep Nishar, SVP of Products and User Experience at LinkedIn. “Mobile professionals are using applications like Flipboard daily to consume news, so it makes sense for us to bring LinkedIn?s unique professional lens on news to this audience.”
