The Australian and New Zealand head of business networking site, LinkedIn, has said that New Zealand businesses are not doing enough to take advantage of online services.

Speaking at the Social Media Junction conference in Auckland this week, Rosenberg said local businesses need to get smart and target their online use to their intended market.

LinkedIn recently said it would acquire mSpoke in a focus on making media more relevant through its recommendation technology.
