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!
