LinkedIn announced today that it has acquired Pulse, the maker of news reader apps for iOS and Android, at a cost of some $90 million.

Pulse says its apps will remain the same for now, although they will now offer a “LinkedIn Influencer” feed featuring the company’s hand-picked contributors. Pulse says its apps currently have over 30 million users around the globe, with approximately 40 percent of those outside the US. LinkedIn recently topped 200 million users.
