We have social site for selfie lovers to upload photos, we also have site for people to stream live videos, or capture moments in video and upload them later too, and we also have a social site for working class known as LinkedIn (you know it already).
LinkedIn bought by Microsoft for $26.2 billion has recently announced that it has gloriously registered 500 million users in a total of 200 countries on its platform, thus gaining a new momentum and milestone for the company. The official statement came as soon as users grew in number from last October month checked and it was 467 million members.
With a new surge of members rolling in LinkedIn, the company is trying its effort at best to increase the engagement and time spent on the site by its newly registered members by jazzing up one more update in the site. Users of LinkedIn might be seeing small new information about people in their network in the “My Network” tab – where you can also get to add new connections and accept invites from others at the same time. To get the users visit the new tab, LinkedIn is going to feed the users with stats about people who are already in your list. According to a source, LinkedIn shall include lists of who is the most connected in your network, with whom you have the most mutual connections and interactions, who was your first connection, and so on.
Unveiling its secret, LinkedIn stated that it has over 10 million jobs listed, more than 9 million company profiles, and over 100,000 business articles published in each week.
