LinkedIn crosses 100-mn members

 Professional networking website LinkedIn has announced that it has crossed the 100-million member mark in the Asia-Pacific region (APAC), and with 37 million members, India is its largest market in the region.

 
Worldwide, India retains its spot as second largest market after the US, a statement by company said.
 
LinkedIn has increased its member base in the region from 50 million to 100 million in just two years. The region now represents 22 per cent of LinkedIn's global member base of over 450 million. 
 
"At this scale, LinkedIn is in an even stronger position to help members connect to economic opportunity, whether it's a new job, a promotion or other business opportunities,” said Olivier Legrand, Managing Director, LinkedIn Asia Pacific and Japan, in a statement. 
 
China presently accounts for more than 23 million members, while Australia has eight million members. 
 
Member base across South East Asia has also risen, hitting 18 million including six million in Indonesia, four million in the Philippines, three million in Malaysia, and one million in Singapore.
