Profits recently reached over $40 million, around double what was expected. The popularity of LinkedIn is thought to be due to increased numbers of recruiters and job seekers signing up to use the site as a way to fill and find jobs.

LinkedIn continues to be the front runner in business social media, because of its CV style format it is a great way for people to share their work experience and get noticed online. If it continues to develop its social networking features, this popularity will only increase.

Future prospects for the social media site are bright and it is becoming more and more popular worldwide, with international earnings now 38% of the total business revenue according to recent reports.
