LinkedIn Hits 300 Million Members, Compares Today To Five Years Ago In InfographicBy: Chris Crum - April 18, 2014
LinkedIn announced on Friday that it has surpassed the 300 million member mark. When it reported its earnings in February, it had 277 million.
A third of the 300 million are members in the U.S.
“While this is an exciting moment, we still have a long way to go to realize our vision of creating economic opportunity for every one of the 3.3 billion people in the global workforce,” says LinkedIn’s Deep Nishar. “To get there, we are delivering personalized experiences built around members and their identity, network and knowledge. We believe this focus will give us the ability to better help each of our members achieve their professional goals. This strategic shift has already come to life through our content products.”
The company says that later this year it will reach the moment when mobile accounts for more than fifty percent of all global traffic. Mobile users already outweigh desktop users in Costa Rica, Malaysia, Singapore, Sweden, United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom. LinkedIn says it sees an average of 15 million profile views, 1.45 million job views, and 44,000 job applications in over 200 countries through mobile every day.
LinkedIn will release its next earnings report on May 1st.
