MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  LinkedIn last week named Chief Executive Matt Barrie as one of 150 key worldwide opinion leaders.

LinkedIn's Influencers offers users of the professional networking site an opportunity to follow the opinions and advice of world leaders in politics, industry, commerce, and academia.  Each Influencer is given a platform for communicating directly with LinkedIn's 175 million user audience via long-form essays and status updates.

LinkedIn's Influencers include Barack Obama; Richard Branson; Federal Communications Chairman Julius Genachowski; billionaire and Wall Street legend T. Boone Pickens; Craigslist founder Craig Newmark; motivational speaker Tony Robbins; and tech evangelist Guy Kawasaki. Barrie was only one of two Influencers selected from Australia, with the other fellow Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year finalist Naomi Simson, CEO of RedBalloon.

Barrie's first post on the network was an essay entitled How to Hack a Billion Dollars in 3 Years, which he followed up with Make Money Without Working: Automate Your Business. Both of these articles can be accessed from his LinkedIn profile, or directly at the following addresses:
