LinkedIn, the social network for business, just added a new feature that makes the service a little more like. . . well, you know, that other popular social network which shall remain nameless.
It’s called Company Status Updates and it’s an easy way to keep your company’s name in front of your customers. This new feature allows the page admin to post a 500 character message which can include a video, URL or photo. That update then appears in the feed of any person following your company.

Only company page admins can post, but anyone can comment and that comment shows up on the Followers home page, so there’s that extra bit of reach everyone is always talking about.
