More on LinkedIn: At a conference yesterday, CEO Jeff Weiner stated his company aims to create an "economic graph" of information about professionals, much like how Facebook has created a "social graph" of connections between users and their interests. Weiner sees an economic graph enabling tools that allow companies to analyze a workforce and business conditions in a particular area. Also, as demonstrated by recent moves, he wants LinkedIn to be a bigger source of original content that can be used to demonstrate expertise.
