Today’s infographic illustrates the performance of selected tech companies in 2012. The chart compares companies such as Apple, Google and Facebook regarding their profit, revenue growth and stock performance.

To compile this graphic, we awarded 1 to 10 points in three categories: profit, revenue growth and stock performance. The points were awarded based solely on rank and are not weighted. 

According to our (admittedly simple) point system, LinkedIn is this year’s winner in the tech economy. The social network for professionals continued to post impressive revenue growth while returning to profitability.

Apple and Samsung continued to dominate the smartphone market which earned both of them a spot in the Top 3 of our ranking.

Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook will likely be happy to leave 2012 behind. What was supposed to be Facebook’s big year, turned out to be a year to forget.

The company’s overhyped and ultimately botched IPO earned Facebook a ton of bad press and despite delivering some positive news in the past months the company’s stock price has yet to return to its IPO price of $38.

Please note that this infographic is in no way supposed to be a scientific comparison. It is merely meant to be a fun and illustrative way of comparing the performances of companies a lot of people are interested in.
