First of all, congratulations to Reid and the rest of the Linkedin team for reaching the outstanding milestone of 100 million members!
The Top 4 fastest growing countries are 1. Brazil, 2. Mexico, 3. India and 4. France (yes, France! I guess it is no good news for our friends from viadeo…)
And it is important to note that Linkedin managed to reach this incredible growth rate without compromising too much on the overall quality of its member base.
I am Number 27,946
I love movies. Here needless to say that Linkedin did much better than Dreamworks with the first installement of its “I am Number Four” franchise. 😉
Today, I was thrilled to receive an email from Reid Hoffman in person. What a nice touch. Apparently, I was member #27,946! It kind of makes you feel special and proud to have contributed to the success of this invaluable business network.
Indeed for the last 7-8 years I’ve used Linkedin religiously and it enabled me to:
* connect with some amazing people all over the world,
* organize an enormous number of highly valuable and productive business meetings,
* help me build credibility and a trusted business.
Reid after all these years, and more than ever, I remain one of your most passionate advocates.
