I am not used to write article in reaction to news but at that point I have to write it down.
So Microsoft just bought LinkedIn for over $26 B. That’s a lot of money but what is important is another figure: 249$.
I found this number on the net and it is the first time I see a pricing for a profile.
Take $26.2 billion, divide it by 105 million, which is the total number of active members on LinkedIn, and you get $249.52. And that tells us exactly what our professional information and allegiance–yours, mine, and virtually everybody we know–is worth.
Just take a moment. Think about it and what it means for you, for us and for the business.
That’s pretty interesting. Really.
