LinkedIn Hits 100 Million Users In Asia

The result is largely due to growth in India

LinkedIn has hit the impressive milestone of 100 million users in Asia. Mainly driven by its success in India, new data released by LinkedIn reveals that the Asia Pacific region represents around 22% of the site's 450 million users, with India accounting for 37 million users and China accounting for 23 million. LinkedIn's Asia Pacific Managing Director, Olivier Legrand, said that the “rapid pace” at which the member base doubled from 50 million to 100 million members made the milestone more special. He also added that 40% of the world's professionals live and work in Asia, leaving LinkedIn with room to grow in the region. In June, the professional social network was acquired by Microsoft for over 26 billion US dollars, a deal that is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
