LinkedIn membership crosses 5 million users in India

InformationWeek News Network, March 25, 2010

The networking website has seen strong growth in India since December 2009

LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network with more than 60 million members globally recently announced that its Indian member base has grown to more than five million users. LinkedIn has been seeing strong growth in India since establishing its office in India in December 2009.

“Our member growth in India has been strong over the last three months. We are seeing a buzz around LinkedIn with more and more members engaging through LinkedIn Groups and LinkedIn Polls which is helping our members connect and collaborate across geographies,” said Hari V Krishnan, country manager of LinkedIn India.

LinkedIn members are using Answers, Groups and Polls to engage, collaborate and even grow business opportunities across the LinkedIn network. In addition, LinkedIn’s open API platform has also enabled developers from India to custom-build integrations with LinkedIn.com to provide members an engaged professional networking experience. The company’s integration with Twitter has also provided further impetus in driving member engagement.
