As of November 1, 2012, the site had 187 million members, according to Mashable, and LinkedIn hit 100 million members in 2011. However, as All Things D mentioned, this is the number of LinkedIn’s registered members, not monthly active users.
The professional network serves users in 19 languages and the fastest-growing countries for LinkedIn use are Turkey, Colombia, and Indonesia. Of those industries represented, information technology and services was the most popular, followed by financial services, higher education, computer software, and telecommunications.
In October 2012, LinkedIn introduced a way for the average user to follow well-known executives, influencers, and leaders in more of a subscriber-like way. The most followed influencers are Richard Branson, President Obama, Deepak Chopra, Tony Robbins, and LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner.
