According to the publication, this opening will take place in stages, with access opening initially to 25.000 English-speaking users. The process is expected to be completed in about two months.

"One of our big, strategic bets for the is LinkedIn to evolve into a defining, professional publishing platform," said Ryan Roslansky, CEO of the company. "We're doing this because we want LinkedIn to be the place where members can grow into productive, successful professionals — not just the place where you try to find , or look for another person".

The company launched the Influencers network last fall, with about 150 "thought ,” which have since grown to around 500. That number will remain broadly the same, though Roslansky told TechCrunch that the new open access publishing on LinkedIn could potentially allow users to enter these lists by writing publications aimed at a wider audience.

Influencers' posts are particularly popular on the network, achieving high traffic. According to the report, the company is also adding to the Influencers some "powerful" names in the business space, such as its CEO , Κάρλος Γκοσν και ο δημιουργός της s Summly and now Yahoo! executive Nick D'Aloisio.
