LinkedIn on List of Hottest Silicon Valley Startups

It has become the professional's social network site

LinkedIn has become the professional's social network site, and it is gaining popularity fast.  Add in the purchase of a stake in LinkedIn by SAP, and you can see why Orchestra is so heavily invested in LinkedIn.

LinkedIn provides professionals a place for open and honest business discussion, without the anonymity of other social media sites that can lead to unprofessionalism.

LinkedIn is featured in an article as one of the top startups in Silicon Valley.

*Obviously one of the world's largest news providers doesn't use Drupal, as you can see form the ugly URL. Maybe someday they'll get with it and have a URL like this: www.reuters.com/article/linked-named-top-silicon-valley-startup

Story Details:  LinkedIn, founded 2003: The most popular social networking site for professionals was valued by its investors last year at $1 billion and has annual revenue beyond $100 million. Subscribers provide their professional background on line as a way of meeting others in their field and as a way for companies to help hire.

The company has 43 million members, half outside the United States, and adds 1.5 to 2 million monthly. It turned profitable in 2008.

We hope to see you there and hope more that you get involved and participate.
