Linkedin, a social media client built for professionalism and careers, is introducing a new way to present users with trending news. If you’re in the market of reading what’s new in the world of business news then this is more than perfect for you. Linkedin, much like itself, will feature news related to technology, finance, healthcare, business sales, and all around business type news; at least to start with.
As of last week, Linkedin’s trending stories have been appearing in the United States and even though it hasn’t gone international yet, that feature will come soon. If you’re familiar with Linkedin’s interface – a new trending tab will appear on the top right of the site’s homepage and a new tab will also be added to the mobile Linkedin client.
To prevent any hiccups, at least at first, all of the new trending stories will be handpicked by a team of at least two dozen editors. These editors come to Linkedin from respectable news outlets that include The Wall Street Journal and Reuters. The new feature will also open doors for users to explore more job and educational opportunities, which is what Linkedin is really all about.
Linkedin is without a doubt one of the most useful social media clients out there on the market, as well as one of the most underutilized. Linkedin relies very heavily on connecting you with people who can help you build the biggest and best professional network you can build. Working almost like a virtual resume, users can search for jobs directly through the social media client through the jobs tab at the top and can apply for positions directly using the information already provided through your profile.
Overall, it beats having to type in your information over and over again when applying for jobs directly through a company’s website.
