LinkedIn is definitely on a roll. The company, which is public, has a strong stock with over 600 times earnings and a great support around $100, even on tough days in the market. They’ve also been recording record quarters and have started to aggressively expand internationally. A recent infographic from digitlab looks at one of those expansions, and reveals how LinkedIn breaks down in South Africa. The stats are pretty illuminating.
The most interesting area of the infographic is the section on industries and their respective growths. Between hi-tech, corporate, finance, government and agriculture, you may be surprised to know that Agriculture was the fastest growing industry over the last year. I imagine that we’ll see industries other than technology and finance grow in the coming years on LinkedIn, and this chart shows it happening in South Africa. Kudos to Digitlab for the infographic.
