LinkedIn Opens Developer Platform

This article discusses a recent change at LinkedIn, opening up its platform to outside developers. This is a step in the direction that Facebook and Twitter took, to try and also include LinkedIn functionality on outside sites to increase activity and users. I also recently read that LinekdIn is the only other current Social Network, besides Facebook, that is still growing its memberships and I think it could emerge as the leading niche social network for professionals. This is an important move for LinkedIn as it continues to grow towards going public at some point later this year.
