While it isn't necessarily the first mover of its industry, it seems to be the first to have perfected it. Regardless of valuation, I see LinkedIn's business model being worth more than the $18 billion it is currently valued at.

Talent Solutions, the company's largest segment, grew over 100% in FY 2012 and will continue to become more prominent with major businesses across the world. Pair that up with major growth from the Premium Subscription and Marketing Solutions segments and this is one of the first social media websites with real teeth.

True innovator in its space with a huge moat waiting to be built upon. Long-term lock, 5+ years.
