LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner just dropped some numbers on the LinkedIn social platform’s measurement of user engagement, revealing that the social network now boasts 85 million members and is adding a member each second. “That’s the fastest ever,” Weiner said revealing that it took the site 477 days to get the first million and 9 days for last million.
“We have begun to establish critical mass, especially on a global basis,” said Weiner. Indeed, half of new membership now comes from overseas. The site is also close to hitting 60 million monthly uniques according to Comscore which means that a good proportion of its members return visit.
LinkedIn currently has $103 million in funding led by Sequoia Capital. You can watch more of today’s Web 2.0 Summit talks on the Livestream here.
