LinkedIn Buys B-To-B Ratings Startup ChoiceVendor

LinkedIn has made its second acquisition in two months, buying up ChoiceVendor, a startup that features customer ratings of business-to-business service providers. LinkedIn says in a statement, that the acquisition is “right in line with our top priority to build a world-class team.” ChoiceVendor CEO Yan-David Elrich founded IM client, which was later sold to iSkoot, while co-founder Rama Ranganath was an early engineer on Google’s AdSense team. ChoiceVendor is shutting down its service. No word on when — or if — any of its reviews will be coming to LinkedIn.
