Whether you have read our LinkedIn Reader or not, you will, now that LinkedIn is the no.1 growing site for business professionals. It is a site that is used by both professionals and whole businesses alike.

The website was founded in 2002 and launched in spring, 2003. IT was founded by Reid Hoffman. Hoffman began his career at Apple and Fujitsu after graduating from Stanford and Oxford universities in the 1990s. He was a member of the founding board of American financial transaction website PayPal and along with several other members, founded LinkedIn after PayPal was acquired by eBay in 2002.
