LinkedIn has now crossed a pretty significant milestone: 500 million members. The company, which was acquired by Microsoft in 2016, took to a new blog post to talk about the achievement, along with some stats that put the professional social network's massive numbers into perspective.
According to LinkedIn, those 500 million users are spread out across 200 countries, with United Arab Emirates, Netherlands, Singapore, the UK, and Denmark representing the top 5 most connected countries. From LinkedIn:
Impressively, LinkedIn counted 467 million users among its ranks in October, meaning it gained 33 million members in just 6 months. And though its focus may be different, LinkedIn is the latest in a handful of social networks to cross the half billion mark. Just in December, Instagram, for example, announced it now has 600 million monthly active users.
