3 Reasons to Buy LinkedIn

In the following video, Motley Fool tech and telecom analyst Eric Bleeker gives us three reasons to buy LinkedIn (NYSE: LNKD  ) . He tells us how, while mobile has been a big challenge for other social networks because of the losses in advertising revenue, LinkedIn's business model of offering premium services benefits dramatically from the increased connectivity. He also tells us just how well LinkedIn is growing those premium services, and why the company has a solid moat even against other social-networking giants.

LinkedIn could be a real win for social-networking investors, but we here at the Fool want this to be the year your portfolio dominates across the board. Make sure you start 2013 with a bang and get the inside scoop on what Motley Fool superinvestor David Gardner will be buying this year.

    Nice propaganda piece, but no real substance. No discussion of the quality of their earnings or why they make less money with larger revenue.

    I get the increased feeling that the Motley Fool has turned into a pay-for-review blog because it comes out with very thin arguments and little in-depth insight these days.

    Well said, homersP.

    Lnkd is the equivalent of Enron during the bubble days.

    All Lnkd's management has ever done is hype, hype, hype. Anyone can buy growth.

    I can start a company too giving away 100 Million iPhone5s and expensing them, which is what Lnkd does, BUYING growth. It's all creative accounting.
