  20. 20. LinkedIn Share drives high clicks back to publishersSource Linkedins Share Button: Heres The Secret Behind Its Disproportionate Power In Social Media  For every article a user "shares" with her network, LinkedIn drives an average of 1.5 clicks back to the publisher.

You can share all kinds of random nonsense on Facebook and Twitter -- and no one cares, or remembers. On LinkedIn, however, your future bosses and employees are watching. People think before they share.”Source Social Media Smackdown: LinkedIn vs. Twitter  Roughly speaking LinkedIn shares generate 4 – 5 x more traffic to my articles than tweets, Facebook likes, and Google +1s combined.
