“4 out of 5 British professionals are now LinkedIn members”

Written by / During a recent heralding by LinkedIn that the professional networking site has reached the significant milestone of 10 million UK members, one particular finding resonated:

Our group, the UK Marketing Network, a community that has taken three years to build, consuming vaults of time and dedication, is one of the most followed by UK members.  The Network, a flag-bearer of the community, is exclusive to UK marketing professionals and on-board staffing organisations and corporate employers.

Looking at the groups there is one common trend: the content and member engagement is terrific, with little or no spamming – which suggests top-notch monitor procedures from the group managers.

The top 5 groups listed are:

  1. Transforming Recruitment Online
  2. UK Marketing Network
  3. Social Media Marketing
  4. Digital Marketing
  5. TED: Ideas Worth Spreading
LinkedIn Managing Director EMEA, Ariel Eckstein, said: “Digging into the data a little, it means that 4 out of 5 British professionals are now LinkedIn members. The UK is currently LinkedIn’s third largest member market globally – exceeded only by the United States and India.  This is especially rewarding for me because it shows that professionals in the UK are finding value and relevance in LinkedIn.”
