LINKEDINLinkedIn is a professional social network in the world which contributes on helping business professionals network, develop their skills and grow their business. Launched in 2003, LinkedIn passed 100 million members in 2011 and now it has announced it had passed an important milestone of 200 million members. Though it is comparatively smaller in the business point of view, the matter is worth to celebrate.

The user base is up by 13 million from 187 million, last quarter (November 2012). Also, in august last year it had 174 million users.

LinkedIn’s fastest growing country is named as turkey, the most unexpected thought though, chased by Colombia and Indonesia. Countries Impressing LinkedIn by strong mobile usage is China followed by Brazil along with Portugal, India and Italy. Interestingly every second about 2 people join LinkedIn.

Also, telecom Industry is the fifth largest industry on the network with 1.59 million employees and at the first is the Information Technology and services employees who contribute to 4 million figure. Astoundingly, most followed personality of India is Deepak Chopra MD who is the third largest followed person on LinkedIn and Barack Obama is the second largest followed person.

LinkedIn’s network compares with 1 billion-plus for Facebook, more than 500 million for Twitter and more than 500 million for Google Plus. Though its 200 million is far behind 1 billion users of Facebook but it’s worth to note that every quarter the user base is increased by figures between 10 – 15 million.

Finally, if we assume LinkedIn as a country it would be the 5th largest country in the world whose population would be the sum of France, UK plus Italy and would be bigger than Brazil.  Unfortunately, there is no clear idea of the daily active users and the monthly users. Yesterday till the end of stock market, LinkedIn’s stock value was $113. 66, up 2.24% compare to the previous day.
