Today, LinkedIn became a publicly-traded company.That means Reid Hoffman and other LinkedIn executives spent the morning on the NYSE trading floor ringing the opening bell.

We got a hold of some of the photos from LinkedIn’s PR people.

It's hectic as the group fights their way through the NYSE trading floor.

As they push their way to the podium, the group is surrounded on all sides.

The bell rings and Hoffman, Weiner, Sordello and Levy cheer.

It's official, LNKD is a publicly-traded company.

That was just the start of a great day. Check out the rest of the team's good fortune:
