LinkedIn is Now Curating Playlists for Spotify
Need a bit of extra motivation on your way to the office? Stuck for upbeat tunes to listen to at work? LinkedIn wants to help us out.
The social network for professionals has recently launched a new series of playlists on Spotify to “soundtrack your professional development in various areas,” according to Social Media Today.
With playlist titles like “New Job. Fresh Start.”, “Women at Work” and “Never Give Up” – that include songs like “Walking on A Dream” by Empire of the Sun, ”Delicate” by Taylor Swift and “Rollercoaster” by Jonas Brothers – the platform is committed to helping everyone from job-seekers to new hires attain their professional goals, starting with a great soundtrack.
While some critics argue this is just another ploy to mine users’ data, we have to admit the playlists do include some excellent tracks and appear to increase productivity.
