Microsoft's LinkedIn surpasses 500 million members

Vlad, 24 April 2017

LinkedIn is a Microsoft-owned social network that everyone uses because they think they should. Pleasure usually has nothing to do with it, and that's especially true for when you receive yet another informative (don't call it spam) email from the company. Today is a big day for the work-focused social network (if that can even be a thing).

It's announcing that it now has more than 500 million members, which is fine but obviously nowhere near Facebook. That, however, is a social network you want to use because your friends are there, whereas you are on LinkedIn because you think otherwise you'll be missing out on incredibly amazing job opportunities.

Those 500 million users come from more than 200 countries apparently. Currently there are more than 10 million job listings on LinkedIn, and more than 9 million companies are present over there. Oh, and for some reason people also create content on LinkedIn - more than 100,000 articles every week, in fact.

Wow. The writer clearly is very comfortable with his job that he could say anything he wants to say even if it involves people struggling to go and get jobs through any and all means that they can (incl. LinkedIn). Bless you.

LinkedIn is a resourceful networking site and why on earth is being compared to Facebook? Nobody ever visits LinkedIn for cat videos or dog images.
