Are you familiar with and/or use LinkedIn, has it ever gotten you a job or an interview? Microsoft is banking on its usefulness since it’s paying $26.2 billion to acquire the social network. 

Reports Engadget:

You probably didn’t expect your week to start this way: Microsoft has acquired LinkedIn for $26.2 billion. The company plans to integrate the career-oriented social network into many of its apps and services, including Office, Skype and Cortana. You’d get the details of the person you’re meeting for a business deal, for example, or get help from an expert when you’re working on an Office 365 project. Microsoft is vowing to maintain LinkedIn’s overall independence, including the role of CEO Jeff Weiner, and hopes to close the deal sometime in 2016.

Is LinkedIn about to flourish, or will it go the way of MySpace?
