The Metrics That Matter Most for LinkedIn

LinkedIn  (NYSE: LNKD  )  is preparing to release earnings on Aug. 2. So far, the company's short life as a publicly traded company has been successful. But for investors to fully understand the business and how it makes its money, there are a few particular points of interest to pay attention to in the release. Jason Moser and Charly Travers talk about these points as well as the potential market opportunity that's still out there for LinkedIn

If there's one thing we learned from the Facebook IPO, it's this: Don't buy the hype. Our top tech analyst, Eric Bleeker, warned investors to Forget Facebook and told them about the Tech IPO They Should Be Buying instead. If you missed his call the first time, it's not too late. This company has room to soar.

    The disclosure says it all ...

    Enough said. Furthermore, all you have to do is ask your friends whether or not they use LinkedIn or know anyone that does. Out of 50 or so professional people i've asked. 1 person has used it, and he logged in just a few times.
