While Facebook stock suffered Wednesday, LinkedIn got another upgrade and a $125 price target from Citi analyst Mark Mahaney. Facebook's stock is down 26 percent since its IPO, while LinkedIn is up 57 percent year-to-date.
LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner and founder Reid Hoffman didn't talk specifically about Facebook, but comparisons between the business networking service and the social network were an underlying current throughout their on-stage interview with Kara Swisher at the All Things D conference. Weiner says that LinkedIn's "not about passing time but enabling people to save time."
LinkedIn currently has 161 million users, but Weiner says the dream is big — to "create economic opportunity" for all 3.3 billion people in the global workforce.
