Look out, Facebook: LinkedIn Corp. (NYSE: LNKD) is inching into your territory.
As Facebook stock (Nasdaq: FB) keeps climbing from its all-time low last week of $17.55 a share, business-oriented networking site LinkedIn has introduced some new features that resemble those of Facebook.
LinkedIn last week rolled out a new notification system and launched an update for its iPhone, iPad and Android apps. The updates now inform a member when someone likes or comments on one of their status updates - just like Facebook, the social networking leader.
In the past LinkedIn only sent notifications if someone sent a member a message or extended an invitation to become a connection.
In a statement, the company gushed, "You'll never miss a comment or update to an engaging discussion about a news article or trending topic on LinkedIn."
LinkedIn's head of mobile products Joff Redfern said in an interview that the update will also let a member peruse company pages and job postings on smartphones and tablets. According to Redfern, users requested the feature so they could covertly browse for jobs while at work.
The latest moves highlight how LinkedIn is morphing from a headhunting and career-networking site into something bigger. Facebook big.
