We’re thrilled to introduce a new way for professionals to access LinkedIn & LinkedIn Today‘s top industry news in Flipboard’s iPad app starting today. The new app includes what your friends and colleagues are sharing on LinkedIn, as well as top industry news from LinkedIn Today.

We’ve been pleased with the tremendous user response to our recent social news product LinkedIn Today. We’re seeing professionals across industries — ranging from the Food and Beverage, Legal, or Internet sectors — come to LinkedIn everyday to stay updated on the top news their peers are reading and sharing on LinkedIn and Twitter.

With LinkedIn Today now on Flipboard, we believe staying up to speed on business news will be more efficient and delightful than ever on the iPad.

What’s New?

Connect your LinkedIn account with Flipboard to access these features as part of the newly redesigned business magazine section in Flipboard:

  1. Find out what articles your connections are sharing, and who they are connecting with on LinkedIn
  2. Be up to date on the top news in your industry
  3. Get the latest stories from reliable industry sources you follow on LinkedIn Today
  4. For the busy professional, save articles on LinkedIn or on your iPhone and access them later from Flipboard

We trust you’ll love the integration because it brings together the best of industry trade magazines and business newspapers in one place, while helping you cut through the clutter. Better still, we help you prioritize the day’s top headlines based on what your network and industry peers are already reading and sharing.

One of my favorite features in this first Flipboard integration is saved articles. Let’s say you find a story that looks interesting within LinkedIn Today on the web or iPhone, but you’re short on time (aren’t we all?), you can now save the article and then access your saved articles on Flipboard at the end of your day.

I hope you enjoy flipping through the day’s top headlines as much as we do!
