Yeah, LinkedIn wasn’t doing anything!

As a commenter recently and harshly took me to task about!

So, do you think those folks GOT ANYTHING for their 53 Mil?

  1. Tom OKeefe says:

    Based on revenues of $100 million (with zero costs) LinkedIn is valued (according to Bizak Calculator) at $399,999,984 – 40% lower than their recent valuation of $1 billion. Using the Bizak Calculator based on 20 million subscribers you get earnings of $0.42 per subscriber. Computing EPV for the 5.6 million active visitors then LinkedIn earns $1.49 per visitor.
