The world’s largest professional social networking site just got a bit bigger: Linkedin announced  today that it has hit a new record: it has more than 200-million users in over 200 countries.
The company doesn’t specify the number of monthly or daily active users (just total sign-ups), but whether the majority of its users are the log-in-once-to-upload-my-cv kind or the powerusers who live for networking, it’s still amounts to a slow and steady growth trajectory for Linkedin. It hit 100-million members in March 2011 , 175-million in 2012 and now tops the 200-million mark.
“This milestone is more than just a metric — it’s a reminder of the global footprint and the scale of impact our network has each day,” said Senior Vice President of Products & User Experience at LinkedIn Deep Nishar. “Members come first at LinkedIn and we remain focused on creating economic opportunity for every professional in the world.”
To put the member number in perspective, Twitter has 200-million  monthly active users, Google+ has seen 400-million  signups but only 100-million active monthly users on its website and apps, while Facebook… well, has 1-billion  monthly active users worldwide. Little old Instagram is about half the size of Linkedin with about 100-million  members.
It may not have seen the level of rapid user signups as some other platforms, but Linkedin still gains a new member every two seconds, as its new infographic points out.
