The Value of Being LinkedIn [Infographic]

When Twitter and LinkedIn were hitting their first wave of buzz, waves of critics surfaced to let everyone know it was ‘too little, too late’ — social was already done by Facebook and better.  That juvenile analysis has given way to the realization that social is not just a single stream, but rather a rushing river of which there will be several branches.  One of those branches is the professional social space, of which LinkedIn is king.

So just how epic is LinkedIn?  An infographic from the infographic pundits at OnlineMBA shows a whole lot of interesting stats about LinkedIn, including:

  • 1 million new users every 12 days means 1 new user per second
  • 69% of users make at least $60K
  • 39% make over $100K
  • 2 Billion people searches on LinkedIn in 2010

Check out the infographic below.
