As of late, LinkedIn has been featuring articles from high profile professionals for its users. The acquisition will likely be a successful partnership for where the network is headed.
LinkedIn will reportedly buy Pulse for $50 million to $100 million. Pulse currently services 20 million users who read more than 10 million stories per day.
The app competes with other newsreaders like FlipBoard and Google Currents. Over the last year, LinkedIn added both SlideShare and Rapportive to its repertoire.
