kevin eyres, former alta vista big man (general manager) has joined business-related social networking site, linkedin as managing director of its european services. on going social, eyres remarked:

“People keep asking us if we’re going to ‘go social’ – and the answer is no. It’s about what adds long-term value. If we just wanted to make money we’d add photo sharing, but that’s not what we’re about. And it’s not even about driving page views. We want tools that will help make professionals more productive.”

elsewhere, guardian reports linkedin founder, reid hoffman suggested preference for going public rather than being acquired, a response most likely solicited due to rumors of linkedin’s potential for acquisition.
