LinkedIn Lets Users "Follow" a Select Few

Oct 08, 2012

LinkedIn is taking a page out of Twitter's book...sort of. The social networking site for professionals is not letting users follow other users, but only a select few. LinkedIn has curated a list of users it believes are well-known and have a global reach, according to StudentWise. The social network is starting with a list of about 150 people.

The list includes people such as President Barack Obama and British billionaire Richard Branson. LinkedIn says the lists will expand over time.
