LinkedIn tries to be cool, podcasts have landed on Google Play Music

Today’s Episode

It’s already been an interesting week in tech. We have LinkedIn‘s new app, EFF going after the government, EU fighting with Google and its only Tuesday! I think it’s great to see LinkedIn courting young adults. They really need to figure out a way to convert them over. I know when I was in college, LinkedIn was not a priority. Facebook (because it was still cool) was the priority. Evert college student was on it. Today there are even more choices than I had. I do think LinkedIn can find other ways of courting the younger generation, but this is a good first step. I really hope they push into video and live streaming. I believe they need to find a way to do this if they still want to be relevant. I have said it before, buying Blab is not a bad route to take. Blab has a nice community and it’s geared towards being more professional than the rest. Find out what other tech news I talk about below!
