My weekly round-up

LinkedIn’s revenue grew by 120% since 2010
LinkedIn’s growth is a good sign for Irish businesses who use the professional networking site as it means identifying the right customer, receiving referrals, discovering relationships and finding out new trends in the market will continue to grow too.

Millennium Bridge hosts free picnic
On Wednesday, if you went down to the Millennium bridge you could have been in for a big surprise.  There was a free picnic promoting Street Feast.  Organiser Clare Mulvany said: “It’s a very simple idea, to bring people out onto the street. We see Street Feast as a way to bridge communities and today is the day to kick it all off.”   I think this is a great idea and I’ll definitely be looking out for the next one.

Paul Daniels Hospitalised by Sooty
Driving into work during the week, I heard this on the radio and thought it was one of the funniest news stories this year.  Paul Daniels was hospitalised after being hit with a pizza by Sooty the puppet. It happened when they were filming for a new TV show called The Sooty Show but was just meant to be a funny sketch. Paul has now thankfully recovered.

    This comment can top off your weekly round up,recently you had a article about promoting Irish business on line and rebuilding the irish economy.can i ask this silly question,for example my ip address is in Spain and i use yahoo, a major search engine.I put in yahoo Ireland as i was looking for a sports good,yahoo Ireland comes up and i put in the search criteria and i get redirected to business in the UK??????????? I Then proceeded to put over a a hundred different product criterias and again i got redirected to Uk sellers.Also after each search the yahoo says Uk & Ireland putting Ireland in second place on the search engine???,basically what it is saying is that the uk has more to offer and Ireland is losing valuable online business!How to give refferals for free!
    Maybe getting in contact with yahoo might be a good idea.
