LinkedIn is now a MS company

Yup, you heard that right LinkedIn sold out to MS for 196 bucks a share. I wonder if they will be the next 'skype' to die a slow death because of the MS borg digesting them.

That's the thing about companies of MS's size. They can 100% gobble up anyone else along the way. Crazy stock pricing in General, and the fact that it is an all Cash Transaction just shows the financial size of MS.

Crazy.

Microsoft needs to make a jump to improve LinkedIn to a much smoother social media platform to draw in new people and make it a larger platform.

Many people lost faith in LinkedIn after they spammed any person you ever emailed without asking like 6 years back hahaa
