LinkedIn buys news-reading app, Pulse

See that slideshow above? If you slip through, you will see that LinkedIn, the social network that revolves around business connections, has bought the news-reading application “Pulse.” There aren’t any numbers on what the acquisition consists of (reports are saying around $90 million), however the post over on the LinkedIn blog includes an anecdote on how he, Deep Nishar, SVP of Products & User Experience at LinkedIn, met Ankit Gupta, co-founder of Pulse, at a competition in India that Ankit ending up winning. Nevertheless, the two kept in touch and now Pulse is part of the LinkedIn family. Head on over to the post to read the entire story: LinkedIn Blog.
