I’m going to admit something. I’m on LinkedIn but I really have no idea why any more. Adding to their social media for business and employment ads, they’ve now added Trending Storylines in an attempt to salvage some relevance .
Trending Storylines delivers “daily curated interest-based feeds about the most important developing stories in your industry”.
So, from being a place for business people to share what they’ve been doing, LinkedIn is morphing into – I don’t know. This seems like a desperate attempt for relevance for a platform that is being swamped by Facebook which delivers the ability to share updates, easily message friends and colleagues and catch the latest news.
