LinkedIn announced that is has launched a new Danish language version. The company says there are over 3 million members across the Nordic region, including 900,000 in Denmark.
“Every day, our members are adding information to their profiles, sharing important views and insights, connecting to one another, building their networks and getting access to a world of potential contacts, business partners, investors, employers and employees,” said Lars Ingerslev, commercial manager, LinkedIn, Nordics.
“Furthermore, with the Danish export sector accounting for half (50 percent) of Denmark’s GDP, the addition of a Danish language version of LinkedIn will not only make it easier for Danish professionals and companies to connect with each other, but also to connect and collaborate with a global network of more than 175 million professionals,” Ingerslev said.
According to Ingerslev, there are thousands of Danish groups on LinkedIn. In a blog post, he also cites research from a Danish consultancy company indicating that LinkedIn influences 10% of all new hires (up from 3% last year).
