LinkedIn hits 500M member milestone for its social network for the working world

Earlier this week LinkedIn used a blog post to announce that it has now passed 500 million registered users in 200 countries on its platform, a new milestone for the company — up from 467 million members as of its last quarterly report in October of last year.

In terms of monthly active users, analytics firm Apptopia says that this works out to 250 MAUs on mobile; it doesn’t break out desktop figures.

In its ongoing effort to increase engagement and time spent on the site, as well as to expand the links between users, LinkedIn is rolling out one more small update. From later this week, you will start to see some new information about people in your network in the “My Network” tab — where you also go to add new connections and accept invites from others.
