Publishing Today | LinkedIn Tomorrow [Podcast]

On today’s social media edition of the Morning Media Menu, Galley Cat editor Jason Boog discussed the future for LinkedIn and the publishing industry.

Speaking of the future, LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner outlined his vision for the future of LinkedIn at the Business Insider Ignition conference today. Prepare yourself for the transformation with these LinkedIn profile tips.
