LinkedIn now has 174 million members, up from 116 million one year ago. Unique visitors in Q2 2012 totaled 106 million, according to comScore, and pageviews dropped slightly from 9.4 billion in Q1 down to 9.3 million in Q2.
In the second quarter of 2012, revenue was up 89% over the same period a year ago. LinkedIn’s revenue sources include display ads, subscriptions for premium services, and jobs board. Unlike Facebook, LinkedIn does not rely largely on advertising as a revenue source.
A breakdown of earnings:
revenue from Hiring Solutions products was up 107% compared to Q2 2011, representing 53% of total revenue in the quarter (vs. 48% one year ago)
revenue from Marketing Solutions products rose 64% compared to the second quarter of 2011, representing 28% of total revenue in the quarter ( down from 32% in Q2 2011).
revenue from Premium Subscriptions rose 82% compared to one year ago, representing 19% of total revenue in the second quarter of 2012
The majority of LinkedIn’s revenue (65%, or just more than $147 million) came from the United States. Revenue from international markets totaled $81 million, or 35% of total sales during the second quarter of 2012 (CNET).
Mobile is also starting to play an important role. LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner stated that 15% of new members originated on mobile, up from 10%. Over one-quarter (27%) of visits now come from
While CNET notes that comparison between LinkedIn and Facebook is “inexact,” it is notable that LinkedIn has found success in generating revenue and is now seeing the value of shares rise.

bbc.co.uk - As much of Britain basks in longed-for sunshine one senses that, despite all the economic gloom, our national spirits have been lifted. We instinctively believe that warm weather makes us happier.
In 1998, psychologists David Shkade and Daniel Kahneman decided to test the theory that a sunny climate equates to a sunny disposition in a paper entitled Does Living in California Make People Happy?
The two professors had noticed what they described as "a stereotyped perception that people are happier in California… anchored in the perceived superiority of the California climate." So they compared the happiness of southern Californians with Midwesterners.
Two conclusions emerged from their research: firstly, Californians were no happier than people from the Midwest with its wind and rain; second, of all the factors that affected people's life satisfaction, weather was listed at the bottom. Midwesterners moaned about the weather more than Californians, but that didn't appear to make much difference to their overall contentment.
