Mentioned during LinkedIn's CC: Ad revenue growth will be affected near-term by LinkedIn's transition to sponsored news feed updates (similar to Facebook's Sponsored Stories) - management says it's working to "improve" its ad business model. Also, the impact of a recent price hike for LinkedIn's Recruiter product will be gradual. Talent Solutions customers grew by 1,700 in Q1 to 18K+ (2,400 added in seasonally strong Q4). ARPU higher though 27% of clients are now SMBs (24% a year ago). 30% of visits now from mobile, but PC page view growth still 31%. LinkedIn insists its ad prices remain strong in spite of the mobile shift. LNKD -10.4% AH. (Q1: I, II)

    It was nice for Lnkd to get $.14 of earnings from tax breaks. Good company and growing but stock price was where it could be in 3 to 4 years. $100 is to much for now.
