Conan O’Brien Creates Viral LinkedIn Profile


Conan O’Brien recently talked about his digital presence on one of his shows.  He pointed out that the good news was that he had around 9 million followers on Twitter, almost 4 million Google+ followers, over 2 million likes on Facebook, and almost 1 million subscribers on YouTube. 

However, “there’s one vital piece missing from the Conan social media empire.  Ladies and gentlemen, I have zero followers on LinkedIn.  Zero.  Well guess what.  That’s about to change!”  Conan made it his goal to conquer LinkedIn.  “Here’s the problem.  I don’t know what LinkedIn is.”  He created a LinkedIn profile and it has gone viral:
