LinkedIn's profile views, where you can get a quick rundown of a person's current and past professional experience, provided it's up to date, are some of the most-trafficked pages on the social network, with visitors landing ...
Establishing a clearer identity is crucial to LinkedIn’s future. While more than 300 million people have joined, LinkedIn’s most recent filings suggest that the number of people who log in at least once a month is probably closer to 200 million. Growth in US monthly desktop users and desktop pageviews both slipped into negative territory last year (though visitors from mobile are climbing). To many, LinkedIn is only a place to go when looking for a job. And despite LinkedIn’s exhortations to users to fill in their profiles to “100% completeness” and “endorse” each other, connections and endorsements on the network are essentially meaningless. LinkedIn needs a way to get users to come back more regularly. That’s why, over the past three years, it has morphed into a content platform.
On An International And Mobile Push, LinkedIn Passes 300 Million Users. LinkedIn has been making a push for more international users this year, most notably by launching a beta site in Simplified Chinese in February.
LinkedIn updated the "who's viewed your profile" section of its platform on Monday, adding personalized tips for how users can generate more profile views. The new layout includes more detailed analytics about which LinkedIn members visit your profile page. Now users will be able to see which industries their viewers work in, and whether or not those who view their profile share the same job title.
Turnabout is fair play. Just as Monster Worldwide took the job recruitment industry by storm a decade ago, catching recruitment firms and newspaper advertisers off guard, LinkedIn eventually turned Monster into an also-ran.
Less than four months after LinkedIn launched its iOS email app, "Intro" is being played off the stage.
Intro, revealed in October, sat on top of the Apple Mail client and included an abbreviated profile bar to show a sender's picture and brief professional bio. Tapping the contact opened a more comprehensive profile, including work history, other users' recommendations, and personal connections.
I've been a LinkedIn fanboy for a long time, but I've since become disconnected from the mainstream as far as LinkedIn users go. I am not a headhunter, nor do I use LinkedIn to find a job. I use LinkedIn for business development purposes, to answer the perennial hustler's question: "Who do I know who knows somebody in a company that I want to do business with?"
If you still think LinkedIn is just a glorified online job centre then it is time to think again. Sure, more than half of its revenues – expected to hit $1.5bn for 2013 – still come from recruitment services but there has been a noticeable increase in LinkedIn’s activity around content and publishing over the past year.
With the announcement this morning that it would begin to aggregate jobs from U.S. employers, LinkedIn took a big step to building its Economic Graph, and realizing its plan to provide all the world’s open jobs to all the world’s workers.
Finding a needle in a haystack is no mean feat. Imagine, then, a haystack where each individual strand of hay is desperately trying to look like a needle.
Such is the conundrum facing recruitment agencies and employers that use LinkedIn, the biggest online networking platform, to hire staff. The sheer weight of data, there are 300m users worldwide , is overwhelming in itself. In March, the number of LinkedIn users in the UK surpassed 15m for the first time, almost a quarter of the entire population.

Grant Harvison's insight:
“LinkedIn realized for some time it has to be relevant outside the HR community to make money,” Lieb explained. “Increasingly, it’s becoming a marketplace for thought leadership, marketing products and the marketing of companies as great places to work.”
Facebook is planning to allow advertisers to start targeting users based upon their employer and job title starting later this year, according to a recent blog post. The system, currently being tested and slated to roll out in March, is expected to attract job recruitment marketers, putting the social network in direct competition with LinkedIn, according to agency executives.
