LinkedIn announced the debut of two new features for the company's social news product, LinkedIn Today. According to the company's blog, the first new feature will allow users to "like" and comment on news articles. With this feature, LinkedIn believes it will allow "professionals to engage and create a dialogue around the news headlines that matter the most to them." The company says this will give users in the industry a way to continue a conversation with other professionals in that industry.
The other new feature is called Trending in Your Network. This will give users "another filter to sort through all the professional news articles and industry updates, based on those articles that are currently the most popular among members of their professional network." By adding this feature, the company believes it will give LinkedIn users a more customizable and user friendly experience. These new features are available on the social networking site now.
