LinkedIn and Yahoo's Flickr show triple-digit growth compared to a year ago.
Professional network site LinkedIn made headlines this month when it received $53 million from investors. Of the top social network sites, LinkedIn saw the biggest percentage year-over-year increase in unique visitors, according to data from audience measurement firm comScore. Meanwhile, MySpace and Facebook continue to get lots of attention, too, from marketers who are trying to figure out the best approach for establishing a relationship with social network members -- without alienating them.
