LINE 56 -- Aug 9 -- LinkedIn has debuted its fourth premium service, enhanced search for power users. The other premium services are a job board, a business-to-business (B2B) service provider directory, and LinkedIn for Groups. Says Konstantin Guericke, the company's VP of marketing, "we've got 3.3 million users. The most action is on LinkedIn." The power of the company's model lies in its sharp focus on the business community. "You can reconnect with old colleagues, hire lawyers for patent issues."
