On Thursday the professional networking site LinkedIn said that it has crossed 30 million user mark in India.
LinkedIn has more than 364 million members globally. “This marks a 50 percent growth over the past two years. LinkedIn had 3.4 million members when it started operations in the country in 2009. India continues to be the largest market for LinkedIn after the Unites States in terms of member base,” LinkedIn Country Manager India Nishant Rao said.
The company in February last year had more than 24 million users in India and over 277 million members globally.
“We have reached a critical mass in India, a country that remains a strategic market for us. We also see a significant opportunity to collaborate with key players in India in areas like skills development, so that our members can create an even more significant impact on the economy,” Rao said.
