A report on <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/280810==http://allthingsd.com/20120503/linkedin-buys-slideshare-for-119m-while-beating-earnings-expectations/" rel='nofollow'>AllThingsD</a> said the price of the acquisition fell between $50 and $100 million.

The acquisition is LinkedIn's fourth in six months, including business card digitizer CardMunch, contact manager Rapportive, and presentation hosting company SlideShare.
