LinkedIn – additional information

LinkedIn, which was founded in California and launched in 2003, is a social networking service for businesses and professionals. The site is available in over 200 countries worldwide in 20 different languages. A breakdown, by country, of LinkedIn’s registered membership worldwide, as of October 2014 reveals that the majority of members are based in the United States with 107 million Americans registered on the site. India boasted the second highest membership with 28 million and Brazil rounded off the top three with 19 million registered members. Furthermore, smaller countries including Sweden, Denmark, Ireland and Malaysia all had an estimated 1 million registered members each.
The networking site allows members to create profiles and make connections with others as a way of establishing professional relationships. This function allows employers to advertise jobs and search for prospective candidates. In turn, job seekers can also search and view the profiles of hiring companies and individuals via existing connections. The average number of connections per recruited who used LinkedIn for recruiting was calculated in 2013 and 2014. In 2013, U.S. based recruiters had an average of 714 connections each. This figure increased in 2014, to 763 connections. Canadian, Australian and United Kingdom based recruiters, also experienced an increase in the average number of connections from 2013 to 2014.
LinkedIn offers its members a variety of appealing features. A survey undertaken in May 2014, gave an insight into the most popular features used by LinkedIn company page owners. The most popular feature, with 59.78 percent of respondents, was the ability to share status updates with company followers.
