43% of LinkedIn Users Are American
LinkedIn may not have the wealth of users that Facebook has a social network but as a more focused platform for professionals, it really doesn’t get any better than LinkedIn—and Americans seem to share that opinion; so much so that a large chunk of its user base come from the land of America.
The numbers substantiating this fact come from Zomosphere, a company that takes a look at the trends and stats behind the world’s largest social networks. According to Zomosphere, Americans constitute more than 43% of LinkedIn’s total user base. Translated that amounts to over 61 million users, making America the biggest contributor to LinkedIn’s growing, wealthy and powerful user base. Only India is closest to America in terms of numbers and it is still way behind with just 14 million registered users. Brazil, Canada, France, Netherlands, Italy, Australia, Spain and the UK help tp round out the top 10 in terms of numbers.
The very active professional base on LinkedIn means that big-name brands see it as key tool in blistering recruitment, retention and sales. IBM has the most followers on LinkedIn with over 580,000 people (professionals) linking to the tech giant. So invested is IBM in building its follower base on LinkedIn that it has more people on that platform than on Twitter and even Facebook.
The rise of LinkedIn continues…
