LinkedIn Acquires Pulse

LinkedIn Acquires Pulse

I recently read on AllThingsD.com that LinkedIn announced the acquisition of mobile news aggregation startup Pulse yesterday for $90 Million.  This is a huge acquisition for LinkedIn and a massive step towards becoming a content powerhouse.

This means that LinkedIn is beginning to see the value in engaged users, rather than just being labelled a recruitment website.  What does this mean for you?

For starters you’d better get your LinkedIn profile set up and optimized for your specific talents because there will be more people joining as well as more engaged users looking to connect with you.  LinkedIn will no longer be a spam-infested wasteland.
