LinkedIn says they’re the largest professional network on the World Wide Web. And nobody’s contesting that, even the numbers unanimously agree.
LinkedIn recently announced that they have reached a major milestone this year, and that is counting 100 million professionals from all over the world as part of their ever expanding network.
And the numbers continue to grow. In fact, it’s growing at such a fast rate, that LinkedIn can safely say that the site registers faster than one member per second.
This is exciting news for LinkedIn, but this is also something that site users should be thrilled about. Why? Because this translates to more connections, and greater potential to improve your business/professional reach.

Growing at a rapid rate, LinkedIn is now being used in more than 200 countries and territories from all over the globe. Based on the statistics above, a considerably large number (about 56 million) of registered site users are from outside of the U.S.
LinkedIn users are spread out all over the world. So whether you want to find a supplier within the United States (which has 44 million LinkedIn users), or perhaps connect with a business professional in Brazil, you are sure to find the site to be a useful asset.
The company gives the biggest credit to their beloved users, whose connections, experiences, and shared information make the LinkedIn experience even richer, and the online professional network even bigger.
