LinkedIn will be launching its own audio events later this month. With LinkedIn Live broadcasts, the platform offers users new interactive event experiences that allow members to participate in live conversations.

Users will be able to continue making connections with others at the Live event even after the event ends. (Via TechCrunch)

The platform has more than 150 million active users each month—up from 56 million in 2019—with nearly 80 percent logging in from outside North America. It has expanded from gamers to music aficionados, students and cryptocurrency enthusiasts. (Via NY Times)
