SOCIAL MEDIA NEWS: LinkedIn reaches 10m UK members

LinkedIn now has over 10 million members from the UK.

The professional social network announced the passing of the milestone, which means that ‘four out of five’ UK professionals are registered on the site, over the weekend.

The UK is the third most-represented nation on LinkedIn, behind the United States and India.

A blog posted on the LinkedIn website by Ariel Eckstein, managing director LinkedIn EMEA, said, “At LinkedIn, our mission is simple: to connect the world’s professionals to make them more productive and successful. Since the network launched almost a decade ago, LinkedIn has been a valuable place for professionals to connect, do business and exchange ideas.

“As we continue along this journey, our focus remains on our members. So I’d like to personally thank every member for their continued support and for making LinkedIn a part of your professional life.”

LinkedIn has produced an infographic, which digs down a little further into the breakdown of the UK’s 10 million LinkedIn members (click the image to download).
