Linkedin brought some great new tools and changed some systems and added new features and a new influencer:
Linkedin is pushing harder and harder the Basic (free) users to pay them. And they do it quite well as the revenue improved 21% from Q3 2014.
Talent Solutions revenue increased 46% year-over-year.
Marketing Solutions revenue grew 28%.
On the week of October 16, Linkedin reached the milestone of 400 Million users, now represents 55% of all traffic to Linkedin, China has now has more than 13 million members.

In 2016, these pillars (Feed, Profile, My Network, Messaging, and Search) will also serve as the foundation for the ongoing evolution of our desktop site.
In one year Linkedin quadrupled the number of job listings, from 1 to 4 million. And this figure is going to grow fast in the future.
