LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network on the internet, has reached 200 million members since its launch nearly a decade ago, of which over one million are from the UAE.
Since reaching 100 million members in March 2011, LinkedIn has added 13 new languages, making the site available in 19 languages. Today, LinkedIn counts more than 160 million unique monthly visitors and is the 23rd most visited web property in the world.
“This milestone is more than just a metric, it’s a reminder of the global footprint and the scale of impact our network has each day,” Deep Nishar, LinkedIn’s SVP of product & user experience,” said in a blog post.
The company said in an emailed statement that new members continue to join LinkedIn at a rate of two per second. The company has added more than 13 million members since its last announcement on November 1, 2012.
