LinkedIn has always been billed as a professional networking site as opposed to a social networking forum. Despite this business focus, the site reached an impressive milestone this week – attracting 100 million members.
To celebrate the occasion, LinkedIn created this infographic to give an insight into the current user base of the site, including information on where members are located geographically, what jobs they have, and the popular times of day to log on.
According to Mashable, LinkedIn jumped from 50 million users to 100 million users in less than a year (despite taking six years to reach 50 million). Do you think that the new features such as following companies and popular mobile apps have led to this rapid increase in popularity? Or is it the wide variety of groups, such as the one and only “Invest in cheese” group, as referenced in the infographic?
