LinkedIn has started 2016 in less than stellar fashion.
Despite punching above expectations on income and revenue, LinkedIn stock still tumbled 40% following its fourth quarter earnings report.

The slump marked the worst day for LinkedIn shares since the company went public in 2011.

LinkedIn is predicting revenue of US$830 million for the first quarter of 2016 which, while below expectations, still marks a rise from 2015.
