LinkedIn now has more than 200 million users in more than 200 countries

linkedin 200 million

In a blog post today LinkedIn announced it had passed a new milestone: 200 million members across more than 200 countries. While it's no surprise that the United States is by far the largest country in the network, with 74 million members, the rest of the growth stats show LinkedIn's success outside the English language world. India is the second largest nation in the network at 18 million, and Brazil and the U.K. are tied at 11 million each.

The fastest growing countries on the desktop are Turkey, Colombia, and Indonesia. On the mobile side China tops the list, followed by Brazil, Portugal, India, and Italy. The Silicon Valley roots of the company show in the kind of members who use the site. IT is the biggest industry on LinkedIn, followed by financial services, higher education, computer software and telecommunicatons.

The most followed folks on LinkedIn are a mix of celebrity and industry, with a heavy dose of self-help and can do attitude. Richard Branson is number one, and he certainly has more entreprenurial chops than President Obama, who takes the number two slot. The list is rounded out by gurus Deepak Chopra, Tony Robbins and LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner.

No matter where you're from, what kind of job you have, or who you follow, of course, LinkedIn know you still speak the international language of Katy Perry.
