There is so much value in LinkedIn for business folks. It’s incredible how much I use LinkedIn – even when I’m not working – to keep me up to date with what others are doing in their career, keeping in contact, and making things happen between people (contact requests, reference requests etc)

There is also so much more that you can do with the data. Does anyone know of any packages that perform analytics on the LinkedIn data in a simple form and show summary results? For example, it would be interesting to see # joiners and # leavers for any given organization shown as a monthly trend. This is obviously a great sign of a company’s health….high turnover is almost never a good thing.

It would also be interesting to see a simple chart of where people came from/went to, when they joined/left a company. I’d love to be able to see where individual companies are hiring from. I’d love to be able to see if there is a brain-drain from companies and where the hot new companies are.

I guess I’m asking for a LinkedIn analytics page where I can define my own dashboard (think salesforce dashboard) and take a look at the macro data in an easy to read form. Would be incredibly valuable. Anyone know anything that does this?
