LinkedIn, the business networking site, was one of the first American social media websites to debut at NYSE. In 2011, LinkedIn hit Wall Street offering 7.8 million shares between $32 and $35 a share. By the end of closing, the shares more than doubled; rising as much as 171 percent to close at $92.25 per share. Today, investing in LinkedIn stock is profitable. On Friday, Nov. 8, shares closed at $215.15 per share.
