These Stats Make Sense!
If you were searching for talent to fill an open position at your company, wouldn't you go where the people are?
Based on the LinkedIn Global Stats 2013, last released January 2013, LinkedIn has grown steadily since 2008.
Furthermore, there's more and more evidence that LinkedIn is not the only place you should have a polished online presence. Recruiters also look at Facebook (66% in 2012), Google+ (ranked 3rd in one of the articles), and Twitter (54%). Recruiters seek out your profiles even if you aren't sending them links to your social media profiles.
- LinkedIn has 200 million users worldwide....growing at 10-15 million users each quarter...now at 259 million users as of October 2013
- In January 2013 LinkedIn was getting 50 million unique user visits per week!
