LinkedIn is playing a bigger role by the day in the social media environment. Not only it is growing fast, but it is also one of the leading platform when it comes to keeping its members active and satisfied. Well today, LinkedIn is celebrating reaching 15 million members in the UK.
This is a rather impressive achievement from LinkedIn in the UK as it gained over 5 million users in less than 2 years and Ariel Eckstein, Managing Director for LinkedIn EMEA, was happy to make this point:
[quote]It seems like only yesterday we announced LinkedIn’s 10 million member milestone in the UK and today, less than two years on, we have surpassed 15 million members. We’re honoured to play a part in the professional lives of millions of Britons, helping them be more productive and successful in their careers[/quote]
And to celebrate its milestone (and celebrate British humor) LinkedIn UK prepared this very interesting infographic:
