Well said Paul. Media (& the market for that matter) are looking for something, anything positive to shout from the rooftops. Is it a sign that things are stabilizing? Yes, thankfully. But to some, it's just too fun to talk about.

Especially those in recruitment marketing & advertising. (wipes off red mustache)


There is potential upside and there is potential downside, no one can be sure. What is for sure is that LinkedIn is now on the map in a big way. I would love to see the study of deceased, untouched, duplicate, and garbage profiles of the 100 million – 20% is a fair guess. I’d also like to see a study of the average LinkedIn user and their knowledge of LinkedIn’s various revenue streams. Is the average IT Pro or Engineer aware that recruiters can buy access to the entire network? All that aside, the past two days were certainly a positive moment for an exciting tech company and I’m interested to see what is upcoming.


Linkedin, facebook, twitter are so popular that people cannot live without it anymore (some). Also there are people i know who have only an account with one connection or friend. Are those old fashioned?? Time will tell. But very nice suggestions you made here!
