    LinkedIn needs to be held accountable for their misrepresentation of their privacy policy, hiring policy, et. al.

    They have blocked/removed people for exposing their antics.

    In the meantime, I will do my darnest to keep LinkedIn's feet to the fire.

Ifany such risks or uncertainties materialize or if any of the assumptions prove incorrect, the company’s results could differ materially from theresults expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements the company makes.The risks and uncertainties referred to above include - but are not limited to - risks associated with: the company’s short operating history in anew and unproven market; engagement of its members; the price volatility of our Class A common stock, including in connection with the releaseof any restrictions on trading in the company’s stock; general economic conditions; expectations regarding the return on our strategicinvestments; execution of our plans and strategies; expectations regarding the company’s ability to timely and effectively scale and adaptexisting technology and network infrastructure to ensure that its website is accessible at all times with short or no perceptible load times; securitymeasures and the risk that the company’s website may be subject to attacks that degrade or deny the ability of members to access thecompany’s solutions; members and customers curtailing or ceasing to use the company’s solutions; the company’s core value of puttingmembers first, which may conflict with the short-term interests of the business; privacy issues; increasing competition in the market for onlineprofessional networks; and the dual class structure of the company’s common stock.Further information on these and other factors that could affect the company’s financial results is included in filings it makes with the Securitiesand Exchange Commission from time to time, including the section entitled “Risk Factors” in the company’s Form 10-Q that was filed for thequarter ended September 30, 2011, and additional information will also be set forth in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year endedDecember 31, 2011. These documents are available on the SEC Filings section of the Investor Information section of the company’s website athttp://investors.linkedin.com/. All information provided in this release and in the attachments is as of February 9, 2012, and LinkedIn undertakesno duty to update this information.To supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, the company uses thefollowing non-GAAP financial measures: adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP EPS (collectively the “non-GAAP financialmeasures”), which exclude certain items such as stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets and the tax impact ofthese adjustments. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to,the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. The company uses these non-GAAP financial measures for financialand operational decision making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. The company believes that they provide usefulinformation about operating results, enhance the overall understanding of past financial performance and future prospects, and allow for greatertransparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making. As required by SEC rules, wehave provided a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures included in this presentation to the most directly comparable GAAPmeasures. This presentation, including the reconciliation, will be available on the investor relations portion of our website at www.linkedin.com. 2
