Linkedin is set to acquire Newsle, an alerts service that will help the business-oriented social network to track users outside its website.

According to CNet, a joint statement released by the two companies stated that the new technology will improve Linkedin's existing feature that alerts a user's connections when they're mentioned in news articles which in turn will improve the connectivity between professionals.

The acquisition is the latest on Linkedin's list which has been spending generously on acquiring companies that can bolster its services and offer a better user-experience on the website. The last acquisition took place in February when Linkedin acquired Bright, a data-driven job search startup to bolster its job-search features.
