Pulse is now fully integrated with LinkedIn, providing a personalized newsfeed based on your LinkedIn network. It will replace LinkedIn Today on iOS, Android and LinkedIn.com as the company’s social news experience.
With LinkedIn Pulse, the company begins its transition from a job-hunting platform to a technology-powered media company.
The company updated the Pulse application, a news reader it acquired back in April, and now commenting and liking on the Pulse app are possible. Additionally, signing into Pulse with a LinkedIn account automatically syncs the channels, influencers and content you already follow on the social network, as well as customizes news recommendations based on your contacts. A “What’s New” section in the app lets users find and follow breaking news, and with “My Lists,” users can create their own lists around a variety of topics.
