Canadians have long been known as one of the world's busiest users of social networking websites

Posted On 5:41 PM by Official 1 comments

Canadians have long been known as one of the world's busiest users of social networking websites. It's not just Facebook and Twitter – a growing number are networking for business and career reasons.
Networking site LinkedIn Corp. will announce this week it now has more than two million Canadian members on its site – almost double what it was just one year ago, making it one of its fastest-growing markets among the 200 countries it has members.
The Mountain View, Calif.-based company, which is geared to connecting professionals online, also plans to open an office and hire staff in Canada to meet that burgeoning demand.
An educated work force and robust economy are two factors luring the company. But so is Canada's high rates of social media usage.
“We look at a range of factors when we go into a country – including our penetration, how many professionals there are and also the overall economic opportunity. And in all of those measures, Canada scored really high,” Arvind Rajan, LinkedIn's vice-president of international operations, said in a telephone interview.
“To be honest, when we looked [at] Canada in depth, the only question was, why weren't we there earlier?”
LinkedIn is a private company that began in 2003 and now has 500 employees. The site connects people in the workplace, and job seekers with recruiters. It earns money through subscriptions, advertising and recruiting and says it's been profitable since 2007.
Members typically have a household income of more than $110,000 (U.S.) and are about 40 years old, with an equal split between men and women, spokeswoman Krista Canfield said. Executives from all Fortune 500 companies are members.
LinkedIn's growth accelerated in the recession, as job networking became more prevalent in an unstable economy. Pre-recession growth was about one million new members a month, which accelerated to one million members every two weeks in the summer of 2008 as layoffs mounted.
The company says it now has a new member joining about every second, for a total of more than 60 million members. Half its members are in the U.S., where it's now the third-largest networking site, according to ComScore, a company that measures web traffic.
Canada will mark LinkedIn's sixth office worldwide, and the company says the country has the fastest growth along with India, the Netherlands and Australia. Expanding its Canadian presence has become its top international priority, Mr. Rajan says.
Growth hasn't tapered off in the recovery. “A lot of people, even if they're not job searching, have realized how important it is to have a professional identity, to have all their business contacts in one place in case they need them,” Ms. Canfield said.
LinkedIn plans to open an office in Toronto in the next few months and is recruiting among its members to hire a country manager, followed by a sales and marketing team. It estimates hiring growth will track the U.K., which hired about 40 people in its first two years. It's vying for advertising dollars in the same pool as Canadian online job boards.
The company says Canadian membership is particularly strong among employees at small and medium-sized businesses.
Tom Napier, who sells automation systems at an Ontario manufacturer, is in that camp. He says networking on LinkedIn's site has helped win him orders in countries as far as the U.K., Belgium and South Africa.
“I've been able to form a lot of associations with people from around the world and it has brought business to my company,” said the senior sales account manager for PSI Engineering in Mississauga, who has more than 500 connections on his profile.
Almost eight in 10 Canadians use social media at least once a month, according to Forrester Research, making them some of the most active users in the world. It lists Facebook as “by far” the most popular social networking site. ComScore lists Canada as the world's most actively engaged country in social media.

Opera Mini as a PC Browser (big screen)

Posted On 4:56 PM by Official 0 comments

Hi,

a new version of OperaMiniLargeDevice (OMLD) for the new Java Platform Micro Edition Software Development Kit 3.0, which is compatible with the new Opera Mini 5, has been published here. OMLD for the older Sun WTK, which is the topic of this post, will stay online, as it is also compatible with Linux and many users have installed this solution already.

Now the original post:

Today I have worked on a solution to make the famous mobile browser Opera Mini run in a big window on the PC. The reason for this is the fast browsing experience on mobile devices with this application and the small amount of traffic it generates during browsing sessions, because the Opera Mini proxy reduces page sizes. So also PC users could benefit from using this browser, especially from version 4 that introduces fullscreen support.

Because Opera Mini is a Java ME application, an emulator is necessary. Therefore, I used the Sun Java Wireless Toolkit with the included MIDP emulator. Then I adapted the preinstalled "QwertyDevice" and made a new emulator device template, the "OperaMiniLargeDevice" (OMLD), with the usable screen size of 1200x705 pixels. I omitted the usual control buttons of the standard emulators to have more space for the browser.

Here are two pictures of what the result looks like.


OperaMiniLargeDevice is now available in 4 variants for different screen resolutions. So if you want to test the solution yourself you should follow the next steps:

Requirements:
  • Get the Java SE Development Kit (JDK) from here.
  • Get the Sun Java Wireless Toolkit 2.5.2 for CLDC from here.
Get the "OperaMiniLargeDevice" for Sun Java Wireless Toolkit from here.

  • Get Opera Mini Browser 4.2 from here. Be sure to download both the JAD and the JAR to the same directory. The generic advanced version is recommended.
  • Internet access on the PC
Installation (done for Win XP):
  • Install the JDK.
  • Install the Wireless Toolkit.
  • Unzip your downloaded version of "OperaMiniLargeDevice" (simply extract it, a directory will be created automatically). Copy this directory to Path-to-WTk\wtklib\devices\ . The complete path to OMLD on my machine looks as follows: "C:\WTK2.5.2\wtklib\devices\OperaMiniLargeDevice1024x705".
  • Then choose "OperaMiniLargeDevice" as the default device, e.g. via "Start->All Programs->Sun WTK->Default Device Selection".
  • Then use "Start->All Programs->Sun WTK->Run MIDP Application" to start Opera Mini via its JAD file.
  • The start screen should appear and you should now be able to launch Opera Mini by pressing F2.

Remark:
It might be that you receive the following error on starting Opera Mini:

OTA server emulation started ...
HTTPS server emulation started ...
Error: Reason = 36

The most obvious reason for this error is that the "MIDlet-Jar-URL" in the JAD does not point to the right JAR file. Try to open the JAD with a text editor, locate the property "MIDlet-Jar-URL" and make sure that ONLY the filename of the JAR is left in this entry, e.g. MIDlet-Jar-URL: opera-mini-4.2.13918-advanced-de.jar . You must not use a complete URL to the JAR in the web. And do not forget to put the JAD and the JAR in the same directory.

Navigation:

You can set the link focus and scroll through a site with ARROW keys. The ENTER key selects an action, e.g. a text field. Texts can be entered with the normal keyboard keys. You can copy from and paste text into text fields by pressing STRG+c and STRG+v. The keys F1 and F2 control the menu actions of Opera Mini and the emulator, e.g. security questions for internet access. Since version 0.5 you can use your mouse to control Opera Mini and to click on links.

Hope you find this solution helpful. Any tips to improve this solution are welcome.

Greetings Makube

PS.:

Update to version 0.6 (see this post):
  • Shortcuts in Opera Mini usable
  • Speed dial in Opera Mini usable
  • Special version for netbooks and UMPCs like the Asus EEE or the HTC Shift available
Update to version 0.5 (Major update):
  • Screensize enlarged to 1200 x 705 from 1024x705
  • Mouse can be used to control Opera Mini and to click on links
  • Escape-key does not accidentially close the emulator anymore
Update to version 0.2:

I updated "OperaMiniLargeDevice" to version 0.2 because the first version triggered annoying keyRepeatEvents on some websites, resulting in not being able to focus links. Therefore the property keyRepeatEvents is now set to false. Happy browsing!


High Paying Ads. Extremely Important.

Posted On 4:48 PM by Official 0 comments

Ok Folks, a totally new subject. High Paying Ads.

One of the most obvious things about different ads is- they are different. (Well Daaa..)

Well yes, maybe it's really obvious, but there are still things you need to know:

Lets imagine together, that a new Hi-Tech company wants to sell a new product they invented. Lets call that company "Techy".

Now, Techy wants to let every one know about their new product, so they produce nice commercials, and they place huge posters on the streets.

Oh! What a coincidence! They also use Google Adwords!

Ok.. How exactly is this stupid 'Techy' company story relevant to me? I just want to make some money from my site! (or Blog..)

Well if you want to make money through your Google adsense ads, you better listen hard. (Really hard.)

This Techy company, makes Millions of dollars every month. (Because their product is really good..). Now, you remember that Techy is advertising their product through Google Adwords right? Good.

Lets continue imagining.
Your Blog/Site, reviews "New High-Tech Products", and you also have Google Ads.

If you haven't noticed yet- Google is very very smart, and their technology is amazing. Google knows  how to put the exact suitable content in your site's ads. That's how and why their adsense program is so successful.

And back to our story..
As we both now know, your site reviews High-Tech products, and "Techy" is a High-Tech company, who wants to let the whole world know about their new amazing product.

Since Techy company has Millions of dollars, they wouldn't mind spending a few bucks for Google to advertise their product. Actually, because "Techy" is so rich, they are willing to pay Google lots of money for each click or impression, of their product.


This is where you and your site come in-
Google will place "Techy's" ads on your site, and you will earn huge sums of money for each click, or site impression which shows the "Techy" ad.

You can earn up to 54$, or more, for each click! Look at this short list, of what different company's are paying

For more KeyWords, just search Google for 'Adsense KeyWords'. You are welcome to use the search box on this Blog.

By now, you must be falling a sleep on your computer screen. So wait, just one more second.

If you really want to make money through your Google ads, make sure you do not attract 'New Tooth Brush' or 'Check out this NEW Toilet Seat' ads.. I doubt they pay much..

Have a nice day, and make sure you have the right KeyWords.

Amigo.


15 Great Google AdSense tips to earn money

Posted On 4:46 PM by Official 2 comments

Google AdSense Tip #1: Find your keywords
Before serving ads on a web page, check its keyword density. A free and advanced tool for finding the most prominent keywords in a page can be found here: SEO Density Analyzer. Copy the most important keywords to a text file ([web page name]-Google AdSense-keywords.txt).

Google AdSense Tip #2: Improve your keywords
Get keyword suggestions from Overture Search Inventory and from Google AdWords Sandbox. Get new keywords that can help you improve your ad relevance. Enter the keywords from [web page name]-Google AdSense-keywords.txt and save the suggestions to [web page name]-Google AdSense-suggestions.txt.

Google AdSense Tip #3: Keep your website focused on a themeUse the keyword suggestions to enhance your web pages and to build theme-based content. And also try to get your keywords into the anchor text of your incoming links as much as possible. Don't forget that Google Google AdSense is keyword-targeted advertising: Google Google AdSense bases its advert topics on your websites content, this means that content-rich websites of a popular topic should attract a large amount of ads.

Google AdSense Tip #4: Write a new page every day
One of the best tips is to add a new page to your web site every day. The more content you have, the more visitors you will get. Put an Google AdSense unit on each and every content page of your site. But where? You will find more about that from the next Google AdSense tips.

Google AdSense Tip #5: Choose the right Google AdSense format
Wider formats are successful because the ads are compact, easy to read and are complementary to the content. The top three Google AdSense formats are:

336x280 large rectangle

300x250 medium rectangle

160x600 wide skyscraper


Another successful format is the 468x15 horizontal ad links, that can be placed under your navigation bar.

Google AdSense Tip #6: Color tips
When creating your Google Google AdSense ads it is recommended to use the color scheme and style of your website so that the ads blend in well. Ads without background color and borders perfom better than ads within borders with background color.

Create a custom Google AdSense palette:

border color = background color of your web site

background color = background color of your web site

link color = blue, color of your links

url color = black, #999999

text color = black, #333333, color of your main content

You can also rotate your color palette: select multiple color palettes that blend with your site to create variety.

Google AdSense Tip #7: Position tips
Visitors tend to look at the big headlines to see if your page is worth reading. If you get them interested, they will read the text and look for your navigation links.

Place the Google AdSense ads in a prominent place around the top/left part of your page or under your headlines, where your visitors are most likely to look at.

If you have an article page with a long body of text, the bottom of that article is a good place for Google AdSense ads because your visitors read the text and then they want more resources.

Google AdSense Tip #8: Increase the number of ads
If you have a lot of text on a page, use multiple Google AdSense units. You can use up to three Google AdSense units on a page, two Google AdSense search boxes and one unit of ad links.

Link units allow the user to refine what they're interested in. So if they may not be interested in specific ads on your page, they might be interested in a particular topic, and by clicking on a link unit and a link in the link unit, they'll be able to specify that they're interested in that specific topic and get a lot more options and variety on the ads that might appear.

Google AdSense for Search allows visitors to search Google.com or your sites (up to 3 domains). You earn money whenever they click on the ads that come up on the search results. If you click the Open search results in a new browser window checkbox in the Google AdSense for Search settings, you won't lose your

Google AdSense Tip #9: Preview Google ads
You can find out what ads will be served by Google Google AdSense if you install Google Google AdSense Preview Tool, a very simple tool available only for Internet Explorer 6.0. Click to advertiser sites without generating invalid clicks, and easily add their URLs to your URL filter list. Because Google AdSense uses geo-targeting, Google serves different ads for other countries. Instead of faking your IP or travelling abroad to test your ads, use this Google AdSense tool to see what ads see your visitors from France, Germany or other countries.

It's possible there are no Google Google AdSense adverts available for your webpage. Hide Public Service Ads, using alternate colors or images. Make sure you include the image in a simple html file as a link (use target="_top"). The image size should be the same as the dimension of Google AdSense units. In the alternate url box, enter the absolute url of the html file.

Read more about alternate ads.

Google AdSense Tip #10: What not to do
Don't click your own ads

Don't ask others to click on your Google ads

Don't manually change Google AdSense code

Don't place Google ads on sites that include prohibited content (e.g.: adult sites)

Don't employ cloaking, hidden text or farm links

Don't use Google AdSense ads on the same page with similar ads (e.g.: Yahoo Publisher Network)

Google AdSense Tip #11: Show images above or next to your ads
Placing images above Google AdSense ads is not necessarily prohibited by program policies. However, depending on the method of implementation this could be considered encouraging users to click on ads. So you should include a border line between the ads and the images. Don't show specific products in your images, in order not to mislead the visitors. Just use generic images that will increase the visibility of your ads.

Google AdSense Tip #12: Use section targeting
Use section targeting to emphasize some content in your page. On your site, place this code where you want to emphasize.

Content you want to emphasize.

If you want some content to be ignored, use

Google AdSense Tip #13: Alternate the colors of your ads
Google AdSense allows you to have up to 4 color variations for each variable for which you can specify color. You should do that if you put Google AdSense ads on pages that receive many impressions from the same visitors (for example forums) to reduce ad blindness. For example:

google_color_border = ["628098","628098","000000","000000"];

google_color_link = ["000000","BBB90C","BBB90C","628098"];

google_color_url = ["000000","628098","000000","000000"];

google_color_text = ["628098","628098","000000","000000"];

Great for overcoming ad blindness.

Google AdSense Tip #14: Your Google ads should be visibleMake sure your text ads are visible to the surfers in all screen formats. If you put the ads in a table give sufficient breathing room, i.e. proper cell padding and cell spacing to make the ads stand out from the rest of your content.

Google AdSense Tip #15: Use Google AdSense channels
You can categorize the content of your website into channels and then track your performance. This way you can experiment with different types of ads and see which is performing the best. Instead of buying an Google AdSense tracker, you can enter the most important pages in your site and see how they are doing. Create up to 200 channels for Google AdSense.

How to show adsense below the post title in your blogger hosted blog only on inner pages except on home page?

Posted On 8:03 PM by Official 0 comments

Adsense below the post title is known to give good CTR(Click-Through-Ratio). Here is how you can add adsense ads below every post title, only on inner pages and except the home page of your blog. [Yes, in a safe way!]
  1. Go to Dashboard > Edit HTML.
  2. Click on ‘Expand Widget Templates’.
    expand-widget-templates
  3. Search for
    and place your adsense code below this line.
  4. This is the most important step. Inside your adsense code’s , replace every occurrence of
    • < with <
    • > with >
    • with "
  5. You should NOT change the < and > around script type=’text/javascript’ and /script.
  6. To show your adsense only on the inner pages and not on home page, add before the adsense code and after the adsense code. You can also add
    tags to center align your ads.
  7. The final code should look like this.
    adsense-code
Regarding code changes that I have done, no need to worry about Adsense TOS violation. I have asked my Google adsense representative and according to her as long as any page’s source shows the same code as you copied from adsense account there is no problem. You can verify this by going to your page where you have put adsense. Right click and View Source (in IE) and View Page Source (In Firefox). Of course if you want to double verify this, you can always check with your adsense rep.
For those interested in testing and knowing which ad unit would perform best for them, can refer this excellent post on A/B testing from official adsense blog.

Is omegle.com safe?

Posted On 2:16 PM by Official 0 comments

Is omegle.com safe? my friends go on there all of the time and i just dont feel safe there?

 

Comments  by admin:1)You probely don't want to go there i went on today it really is not a good place. All i said was hi then they started to act really abusive and started insulting me, it happened over 40 times because iv been on there all morining and this afternoon. I don't know if i want to go there anymore, everybody i meant on there is cruel and insulting some said like fu** you sh** bag etc. Everyone on there is insulting and abusive they will keep asking you for things like "asl" meaning "Age, Sex and location". Yeah the place is horrible when i went there. I may never go there again. But rarly will you see anyone even act nice. When you go the link it'll say start a chat, but once you start talking you may want to quit fast or else. They are very insulting and abusive Trust me!. I'd stay away for my own reasons. i dont want to not be insulted and very abused anymore..

 

 

2)Use McAfee Site Advisor website to check if there are any problems such as malware. However, you never know if its a scam site until you read other user comments. Do a search for the site. 

 

3)Obviously not. Some might feel safe because of the anonymity but there are a lot of people out there who will use the anonymity to abuse other people. I went there once, never again.

LinkedIn to open office in Canada

Posted On 2:09 PM by Official 1 comments

Canadians have long been known as one of the world's busiest users of social networking websites. It's not just Facebook and Twitter – a growing number are networking for business and career reasons.
Networking site LinkedIn Corp. will announce this week it now has more than two million Canadian members on its site – almost double what it was just one year ago, making it one of its fastest-growing markets among the 200 countries it has members.
The Mountain View, Calif.-based company, which is geared to connecting professionals online, also plans to open an office and hire staff in Canada to meet that burgeoning demand.
An educated work force and robust economy are two factors luring the company. But so is Canada's high rates of social media usage.
“We look at a range of factors when we go into a country – including our penetration, how many professionals there are and also the overall economic opportunity. And in all of those measures, Canada scored really high,” Arvind Rajan, LinkedIn's vice-president of international operations, said in a telephone interview.
“To be honest, when we looked [at] Canada in depth, the only question was, why weren't we there earlier?”
LinkedIn is a private company that began in 2003 and now has 500 employees. The site connects people in the workplace, and job seekers with recruiters. It earns money through subscriptions, advertising and recruiting and says it's been profitable since 2007.
Members typically have a household income of more than $110,000 (U.S.) and are about 40 years old, with an equal split between men and women, spokeswoman Krista Canfield said. Executives from all Fortune 500 companies are members.
LinkedIn's growth accelerated in the recession, as job networking became more prevalent in an unstable economy. Pre-recession growth was about one million new members a month, which accelerated to one million members every two weeks in the summer of 2008 as layoffs mounted.
The company says it now has a new member joining about every second, for a total of more than 60 million members. Half its members are in the U.S., where it's now the third-largest networking site, according to ComScore, a company that measures web traffic.
Canada will mark LinkedIn's sixth office worldwide, and the company says the country has the fastest growth along with India, the Netherlands and Australia. Expanding its Canadian presence has become its top international priority, Mr. Rajan says.
Growth hasn't tapered off in the recovery. “A lot of people, even if they're not job searching, have realized how important it is to have a professional identity, to have all their business contacts in one place in case they need them,” Ms. Canfield said.
LinkedIn plans to open an office in Toronto in the next few months and is recruiting among its members to hire a country manager, followed by a sales and marketing team. It estimates hiring growth will track the U.K., which hired about 40 people in its first two years. It's vying for advertising dollars in the same pool as Canadian online job boards.
The company says Canadian membership is particularly strong among employees at small and medium-sized businesses.
Tom Napier, who sells automation systems at an Ontario manufacturer, is in that camp. He says networking on LinkedIn's site has helped win him orders in countries as far as the U.K., Belgium and South Africa.
“I've been able to form a lot of associations with people from around the world and it has brought business to my company,” said the senior sales account manager for PSI Engineering in Mississauga, who has more than 500 connections on his profile.
Almost eight in 10 Canadians use social media at least once a month, according to Forrester Research, making them some of the most active users in the world. It lists Facebook as “by far” the most popular social networking site. ComScore lists Canada as the world's most actively engaged country in social media.


Social Networking in Russia part II, Business Networking: will Russians need a LINKEDIN localized?

Maybe it's all official and LinkedIn.com is now opening its branch in Russia? But I have a doubt, I would have known about it I am sure ;)  Well, let's take a closer look at the system internal/ external User Interface and its Logic ,and Ihen I'll leave to you the rest (emotions).
But even before, please let me show you where LinkBOOK.ru is DIFFERENT from LinkedIn.com. They declare (and I believe it's true)  to have lots of different/ (new/ additional, in respect to LinkedIn.com) functionality, such as:
  • Tenders (still not sure what's this about- a Job Marketplace?);
  • on-line sales/ e-commerce;
  • Info-services;
  • the fully functioning groups (as on Xing/ Viadeo) ;

Review : LinkedIn

Posted On 2:06 PM by Official 1 comments

You all probably have heard about LinkedIn. It started a few years ago with only 30.000 users and now has over 9.5 million. Probably half that number are unique business users.
Its’ portal lets you write your profile in a user-friendly way and helps you to find other profiles quite swiftly and accurately. Although you can use it to find people profiles which are related to a business or service, most people will use it to find jobs or (if you are a recruiter) candidates for jobs.
LinkedIn seems to only have ambitions in that specific area, so you cannot find services or products using the same technology which is a shame considering the amount of people who are now on this network. The system also doesn’t match business objectives (like CollectiveX does e.g.).
The best thing about LinkedIn is undoubtedly it's search engine. You can effectively search linkedIn profiles from various angles which might make it attractive to business users. 'Might', because the LI ideology is a 'contradiction in terms'. It is made to grow aggressively in numbers, to an addictive extend. LI is quite aware of that fact but they are not changing it, because it is their winning strategy for now. So anywhere you look you can see that you will get more out of the system if you have a larger number of contacts, recommendations, or at their recently added service 'Answers'.
The new Answers service lets you ask a question to your network who can then give you an 'Answer'. It is published for everyone to see, so it does has a great positive effect on quality on the network by adding a lot of useful information. 'Answers' are also rated as 'good' or 'best'. But sadly you just need one 'best' Answer to get to the Leader board, where the quantity counts again; the more Answers you give, the higher you get on the Leader board. But they are still tweaking this service and them undoubtedly will improve it further. A bit annoying is the 'Linkedin' category where very low quality questions and answers are being asked. It's too easy to get a high-score here with ever repeating same questions. So a system in which only the 'best' Answers count would not do either because this category is so different from the others.
I do like this new feature because it lets you express yourself to your network. Also it does the same the other way around, making it possible to select certain communication styles amongst your network and targeting that effectively. It is a first step toward a real business use of LI.
Profiling
As I mentioned earlier the profiling is very much based upon the status of your profile, not the profile itself. What do I mean by that? Well, if you have a big network and a lot of contacts which are connected to your LinkedIn network, you’ll end up higher in the ranking of searches.
You can choose for people with the biggest network or with the highest number of ‘recommendations’. Naturally heavy LinkedIn networkers are using every trick in the book in order to increase their number of contacts and to give each other recommendations to end up high in the rankings. Quality is therefore very relative on LinkedIn, especially since you cannot communicate directly with one-another. It only has email options, no IM or Skype integration. You really have to know where to look and what to do
in order to be effective.
Shift towards quality
However LI is taking the first steps towards a more quality oriented network with 'Answers'.
LI networkers are now openly asking 'how can we make real business use out of LI, make money with it?' Somewhere in the near future LI will have to address that need, because Myspace business is around the corner and then networkers would have a real alternative.
One of the options for LI might be to have a 'flexible' networking setting to your LI account in which you can state the business and / or quality conditions on which you act upon quality actions such as introductions, recommendations and job-requests.

Also,
in order to be effective people will have to learn about assessing communication-styles, professional profiling and same interest group targeting if they want to be successful in their online business.
Summary
LinkedIn is one of the best and well known portals for job seekers. It thrives too much on ‘status’, it does too little in helping people in quality of online business and to create quality in personal communication. It thus is still a long way away from real business and business objectives. It has a promising basis in the quantity of users, portal interface and user friendliness. To LinkedIn: please understand the real business objectives of your users, introduce the possibility to be flexible with quality actions. Add the possibility of sharing photo’s and IM / Skype integration and same user groups oriented Forums..

LinkedIn makes first acquisition, tops 75 million members

Posted On 2:03 PM by Official 0 comments

It was a landmark day Wednesday for LinkedIn.
The social-networking service for professionals announced the first acquisition in its seven-year history, and said it now has more than 75 million members. (LinkedIn hit 65 million members in April and 60 million in February.)
LinkedIn said it acquired startup mSpoke, whose technology makes it easy for consumers to find relevant content, for an undisclosed amount. The technology should help LinkedIn get a handle on the rich stream of content being created by its members.

Xing To Give Up China And Make Way For LinkedIn In The US?

Posted On 2:02 PM by Official 0 comments

LinkedIn has bolstered its position as America’s leading business social network by the month lately, with Germany-based Xing as the only company regarding itself a worthy competitor in the last few years. But now those days seem to be over – in the US and China, at least.
Today German newspaper Hamburger Abendblatt published an interview [GER] with Xing CEO Stefan Groß-Selbeck (who recently replaced founder Lars Hinrichs), and he revealed a couple of interesting tidbits of information about the future direction of his company (find a horrible, Google-translated version of the full interview in English here).
Talking in broad strokes, Groß-Selbeck said 3.5 million of the 7.5 million Xing members are based out of Germany, Austria and German-speaking Switzerland. This isn’t really that surprising, given the background of the company. But the interview also marks the first time a Xing representative publicly (albeit indirectly) admitted losing in the USA and China.
Groß-Selbeck said he rather sees Xing’s future in those countries where the company has opened offices: Spain, Italy and the rapidly growing web market of Turkey. This statement was followed by him dodging a question about Xing’s previous plans to enter the US and China (he specifically responded that the focus lies on said countries and Xing plans to double its German user base in the next years). In other words, Xing seems to have stopped thinking about expanding into those regions for the time being.
My guess is LinkedIn never really feared the Germans entering their home market anyway, as a) almost no American really knows Xing, b) about half of LinkedIn’s 42 million members live in the US, c) coffers are filled to the rim and d) a $1 billion valuation is sure to let all key employees sleep soundly (Xing’s current market cap at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange: $220 million).
Google Trends shows that LinkedIn outclasses Xing in global traffic, too:
xing_linked_in_google_trends
But Xing backing up in the US and China isn’t necessarily good news for LinkedIn. Their strategic decision won’t make it easier for LinkedIn to gain market share in said European countries where Xing already boasts a strong brand name and position. Here, LinkedIn is in for an uphill battle, which may take years to win (especially as Groß-Selbeck also said in the interview he intends to boost the number of employees from 240 to 360). And China has no shortage of business social networks either (Tianji, Wealink [CN] or Alibaba‘s Ren Mai Tong to name just a few).
LinkedIn is currently available in four languages (English, Spanish, French and German), with more to come soon. The only office outside the US is located in London. In Europe, LinkedIn is particularly strong in Belgium, Holland, France, Great Britain and Denmark). Traffic in China is negligible for both LinkedIn and Xing.

Quick note:

German is my mother tongue, which means I didn’t have to rely on the Google translation linked to above when writing this posting.
