LinkedIn Opens Itself

LinkedIn is opening up full access to its new platform, a thousand developers, serving over one billion page views across the web later.

In a blog post, Adam Nash, Vice President, Product Management at LinkedIn, also showcased the new LinkedIn developer website, which invites developers to 'build the professional Web' with LinkedIn.

What this means, in layman terms, is that LinkedIn (much like Facebook) is opening up its platform even further to external developers to build applications over. The company is releasing a fresh set of plugins, including sign in with LinkedIn, Share, Member Profile and Company Profile, among others. The company has also tightened up its platform – for example, its JavaScript framework now loads faster, and it has added SSL support and more OAuth support.

"In October, we announced early access to a new Javascript platform to help make integrating LinkedIn faster and more powerful. Since then, we've had over a thousand developers test out the new technology platform, serving over one billion page views across the web," said Nash. The company has more exciting things planned for the future, he adds.

LinkedIn has had around $103M in funding, and the company recently filed for IPO, which is expected to peg the company at about $2B valuation.
