Social Media People at Davos

TechCrunch interviewed Facebook’s COO Sheryl Sandberg, MySpace CEO Chris Dewolfe and and LinkedIn’s Reid Hoffman.

The one that interested me is the LinkedIn interview. With LinkedIn gaining a million people a day and being so focussed on the professional workplace, its reflects real life a lot more than facebook/myspace.

Reid Hoffman mentioned something interesting:

Everyone knew we’d get an uptick from job seekers, free agents, consultants. A pleasant surprise is the recruiting space, all of our customers are keeping or increasing their spend. Recruiting business is growing.

Is recruiting business growing just because more job seekers are roaming linkedIn than pre-slump? Or is it also indicative of greater adoption in general of LinkedIn by recruiters?
