LinkedIn Adds Editorial Heft To LinkedIn Today

When we last reported on LinkedIn Today the feature was a smart recommendation engine that would show you stories relevant to your job, based on what was shared by your network and fine-tuned by your interests and industry.

But now, with the hire of Time Inc.’s Dan Roth, the feature will become more robust: Roth’s first task, Peter Kafka reports, is to build up that service. He’ll be adding a human-curated element to the currently automated algorithm. In addition, he’ll be using LinkedIn’s data to create editorial content, Jeff Bercovici reports.

Also today, LinkedIn announced that SlideShare presentations can be pushed to LinkedIn today
