“This has been a huge surprise I had know idea that so many people were viewing my LinkedIn profile. I use LinkedIn several times a day because I’ve found it be the best connection to the business world and format for spreading the word for sustainable event management. All I need now is a small percentage of those people that viewed my status to contact me and take up my services to green their events and I’l be a happy man :)”
Extract from Wikipedia…LinkedIn has more than 200 million members in over 200 countries and territories. It is significantly ahead of its competitors Viadeo (35 million) and XING (10 million). The membership grows by approximately two new members every second. About half of the members are in the United States and 11 million are from Europe. With 3 million users, India has the fastest-growing network of users as of 2009. The Netherlands has the highest adoption rate per capita outside the US at 30%. LinkedIn recently reached 4 million users in UK, 3 million in Australia, 1 million in Spain, and nearly 1 million in Pakistan.
Looks like a good reason to me to be connected.
