This week brought us the launch of Facebook Home, the purchase of the popular Pulse app by Linkedin and the launch of over 500,000 new magazines and 3 million new users for Flipboard. Popular location based check-in app Foursquare just raised over $41 million in funding and updated their iOS app to focus more on search capabilities.
