Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter reached US$92.8m, or 24pc of revenue, compared to US$56.0m for the third quarter of 2012, or 22pc of revenue.

The number of LinkedIn’s members also increased, to more than 259m, a rise of 38pc year-over-year.  The company said members engaged with the site at record levels across desktop and mobile devices, driven by LinkedIn’s investment in core products that improved how members manage their identities and networks, and how they consume and publish content.

“We continue to invest aggressively in our member experience and diverse revenue streams in order to realise the long-term potential of our vision,” said Steve Sordello, CFO, LinkedIn.
