LinkedIn started out as a place for career-minded individuals to network with other individuals but over the years it’s turned into the world’s biggest social network for everything business. They’ve added forums, mentor blogs, the ability to share videos and presentations. They also moved from the individual to the company with Company Pages.
According to their celebratory infographic, LinkedIn now has more than 3 million Company Pages, 500,000 of which were created in the past 12 months. Those pages represent 148 different industries and they range from think tanks to railroad companies and everything in between, beside, above and below. Dig around on LinkedIn and you can find The League of Paranormal Investigators, Inc, The Flipside Circus, and Tiny Paper Cranes – a non-profit that makes origami birds for charity.
