LinkedIn delivered a fairly positive earnings call to go with its Q3 beat (I, II). It noted registered users rose by 13M Q/Q to 187M, and that 1,700 new business customers were added, raising the total to 13.7K (share gains against MWW and others). Also: ad prices are rising thanks to better targeting, and revenue/customer is growing. Two points of concern: there are macro headwinds in Europe and Asia, and comScore believes PC page views have fallen the last 2 quarters thanks to the mobile shift, though LinkedIn claims its PC/mobile page views are up a combined 44% Y/Y. LNKD +7.7% AH.
