Via Twitter, LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner gave each of his 3,500 employees an iPad mini. That's about $1.2 million which I am sure Apple gave him some sort of a discount. At least, I hope so.
And why not? LinkedIn is on a tear and there really is no end in sight as the social network has found a way to monetize is service and actually provide value for its users and partners. Whereas Zucker is still trying to figure things out and Facebook continues to deploy shady schemes to sell out its users to the highest bidders.
Yeah, I just don't see Facebook ever doing something like this.
That awesome moment when your CEO dishes out iPad minis to EVERY employee @linkedin @jeffweiner
