LinkedIn Gets 70M Signups | I'm On LinkedIn - Now What???

LinkedIn Gets 70M Signups

June 21st, 2010 | by Jason Alba |

Finally.  Twitter came out of nowhere, seemingly with 70 million signups.  LinkedIn is now at 70 million - congrats to them :)  Some stuff I learned from this article:

  • 50% is international (outside of the U.S.),
  • There are 1M company profiles (how many are preloaded and how many are put in by a company rep??),
  • They are looking at how to get value out of the data… a la Hoovers?  This is a BIG deal and a major threat to any database with this type of data.

6 months left to see how they end the year – any predictions?
