"LinkedIn Taps Professional Connections to Create News Service"

by Miguel Heft, New York Times

But before it does, LinkedIn wants to give its more than 90 million members — many of whom visit the site only rarely — a reason to stop by every day.

Rather than being edited by humans, LinkedIn Today is put together automatically based on what stories people in a user’s professional network and industry are reading and sharing.
