LinkedIn, the professional social network titan, has recently started trading its shares in open market. With in no time company’s valuation increased by four-folds than pre-IPO valuation. As per latest and last update, company’s shares were trading at little over than $92 per share at NYSE with overall valuation worth $8 billion.
