Huge news today out of LinkedIn and Microsoft who agreed to a $26b deal.  

As well as an indicator to just how important social networks are becoming to the enterprise I think its a coup for Microsoft in their quest to compete with Salesforce for CRM domination.  

When it all plays out, the power of a CRM system coupled with native integration with Linkedins incredible data set is a really interesting proposition for CRM apps.

Will be interesting to see how Linkedins 433m users react in the medium term to this acquisition.
