Demonstrating it’s still the quiet giant of social media, LinkedIn has now hit 500 milion members!
Announced in a company blog, the social network said “This community represents 10+ million active jobs, access to 9+ million companies, and with more than 100,000 articles published every week it’s helping you stay informed on the news and views impacting your professional world. A professional community of this size has never existed until now”
Mashable reports for those who actively use LinkedIn, the network is also home to around 10 million jobs at around nine million companies. And LinkedIn can be a bit more useful for people who live in certain areas. Londoners, for example, average more LinkedIn connections than residents of any other city on the planet, followed by Amsterdam, San Francisco and Jakarta. The United Arab Emirates has more average connections than any single country!
