LinkedIn has always been a social networking service with a bit of a twist: instead of encouraging people to play games, amass as many “friends” as possible, and encourage outrageous online behavior, LinkedIn has targeted professionals and job-seekers, enabling folks to make connections with their professions and industries. And while Facebook is the dominant player in the social networking market, LinkedIn is still experiencing extraordinary growth: the site now claims to have more than 100 million users, more than half of whom are outside the United States.

With over 100 million users representing over 200 countries around the world, LinkedIn is a fast-growing professional networking site that allows members to create business contacts, search for jobs, and find potential clients. Individuals have the ability to create their own professional profile that can be viewed by others in their network, and also view the profiles of their own contacts.
