1) the user base
2) ad sales
3) upgrades to premium membership

LinkedIn brought in a whopping $238m total revenue in 2010

Most use the “freemium” version.

I have not seen numbers on the user base – and each company that touts users – or better – “active” users – measures them & their value differently – I can say this:

– it is good for networking and staying in touch with old colleagues and clients
– it tends to be utilized the most by only a handful of verticals, from my observation
– its job board is decent – but expensive
– it is overrun with recruiters (not good)

and most chilling – as of IPO LI has a market cap of 4.25b on said earnings (238m) = a P:E so unrealistic it is not even funny.

(p.o.r. – the sector P:E – price to earnings ratio – is about 20 (using GOOG as example)

personally – I will not be buying.

But ‘bubble’ – NO.

Given LI’s revenue

It sounds like an old fashioned bull raid, and I think it’s excellent marketing. The market is about setting a price, and since that price has nothing to do with the company, its product or financials, playing games with the price during the IPO when it is easy to control is a great way to signal “value”. Why am I thinking of the story of the theater that hired a slowpoke ticket clerk to get a line at the box office?

One of the great investment fallacies is that there is anything more than a slight correlation between corporate performance in terms of earnings per share, the archaic ability to pay dividends, and stock price.

This reminds me of VMWare the way they are low floating the market to ensure the first day pop. Enough people are placing market buy orders for not enough share in the market to ensure it goes up. Look what happened to VMWare once the insiders could sell(although it has since recovered).

Most of His contacts have up-to-date pages, and He is often notified about updates that lead to conversations or reading of web pages.

He is not on Facebook. i, however, have a Facebook page of my own. i use it only to keep track of goings-on at my local dog park. i don’t find Facebook useful or interesting. i find it inane. Most of my “friending” requests are spam that start out with something like, “Hey, guy, you’re lookin’ pretty good.” Yeah, maybe….

Then again, i’m only a dog (“IOaD” (TM)). To me, there’s not much worth sniffing on Facebook. Now, if they came out with Fessebook, i might be more interested..
