LinkedIn is the world's largest professional network, with 810 million members in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide. People use it every day to create professional connections, share business news, career milestones, and those fantastic selfies at professional events! Check out these stats:
- 42.8% of LinkedIn’s global users are female. (Data Reportal)
- LinkedIn saw a 55% increase in conversations among connections in 2021 (LinkedIn)
- LinkedIn has 15x more content impressions than job postings. NINE BILLION content impressions, actually. LinkedIn has transitioned from being “just” a recruitment platform to being a professional network where people educate and inform themselves and learn about other companies in their industry.

- LinkedIn posts with images get 2x higher engagement (LinkedIn)
- 49 million people use LinkedIn to search for jobs each week (Hootsuite)
- Six people are hired through LinkedIn every minute (Hootsuite)
Growing that magic number of connections certainly looks cool on your profile, but are you doing a good job leveraging LinkedIn to build a robust network, establish thought leadership, make your personal brand visible or define career pipelines? How often do you update your profile? And do you update it as frequently as your CV? Are you using LinkedIn as your personal CRM? How can you create your personalized LinkedIn “LINK?”
