LinkedIn Lands Itself Over 300 Million Users.

The professional social networking site known as Linkeden, has recently announced this morning, that the company has manged to gain over 300 million members for it social media site, raising from its previous 277 million it managed to allure several months ago part of its fourth-quarter results.


In total, LinkedIn has managed to gain over 100 million new members during the past 15 months, or an average of 6.7 million new users every month.

Now the truly curious thing about where all these job seekers, recommenders, recruiters, and more came from, which LinkedIn noted down that half o the users on the site’s membership are from international areas.Only 100 million members, one-third- come from the U.S. Areas, Furthermore, a fairly large piece of LinkedIn’s total user base are accessing the site from their mobile devices.

“Later this year, we are going to hit our mobile moment, where mobile accounts for more than 50 percent of all global traffic,” LinkedIn senior vice president Deep Nishar said in a blog post. “Already, our members in dozens of locations including Costa Rica, Malaysia, Singapore, Sweden, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom, use LinkedIn more on their mobile devices than on their desktop computers. Every day we see an average of 15 million profile views, 1.45 million job views, and 44,000 job applications in over 200 countries through mobile.”


LinkedIn hasn’t proved any numbers of comparison regarding just how many of its 300 million registered users are currently active. Competing social network, such as Facebook and Twitter, tend to highlight monthly active users count instead of the total amount that are registered. But LinkedIn has noticed in its last earning call that the service had roughly 139 million unique monthly users. This exclude those who have utilized LinkdIn’s SlideShare platform: with that, the figure increases up to 187 million monthly unique users. Although both of these figures exclude mobile traffic.

According to an infographic released by LinkdIn, roughly 56 percent of the sites’s users have self-identified as males and the other 55 percent as females, down 5 percent and up 5 percent. from five years ago. India has also increase from its third place into second in terms of international membership. Newcomer Brazil has taken over the number 3 spot, followed by the United Kingdom and Canada.
