In a time of uncertainty for social networks’ steady revenue, LinkedIn is undergoing an executive shake-up with Chief Executive Dan Nye stepping down. Company founder Reid Hoffman will eventually be taking the company in the direction he sees as the best for LinkedIn, with former Yahoo executive Jeff Weiner acting as interim president for LinkedIn’s day-to-day operations, reports the L.A. Times.
