Adding short url for linked in

It would be great if we could get the short link for LinkedIn added to the Social Media sites.  Currently, linkedin.com is in there but not 'lnkd.in' and is being bucketed elsewhere in the traffic reports. Thanks!

Totally agree!  Just discovered it is considered External.  Google Analytics correctly considers this Social.  Client Care said that for every maintenance release, they update their lookup tables for any changes that have happened.  Since this started in July, their next release is in February or March 2015 and this should get updated then.  Very disappointed that Adobe didn't catch this in all the releases we have had since July.  This requires a bit of manual reporting to get our Social instances correct.

Thanks for the tip on this, @jdraplin / @pa2charlotte . We are working with our platform team to ensure that lnkd.in is tracked correctly as a social referrer. Look for this change in the release notes very soon.
