LinkedIn following Facebook lead

Posted on June 25th 2007

I read today in Techcrunch that LinkedIn is opening up its platform for application development to follow Facebook’s lead. To me it seems too little and too late … anecdotally I’ve seen a fast pickup shifting of people from LinkedIn to Facebook in my network. I’ve read about the same. LinkedIn is rapidly becoming known as a recruiting tool / job board network.

I’ll go out on a limb to say that LinkedIn needs to do something more interesting than follow Facebook’s moves nine months later.
