Today LinkedIn announced that they have over 85 million members. From time to time I like to click on the “network statistics” tab. This morning I noticed that I have 2,350+ first level connections and in less that 3 degrees of separation I can connect with 14,247,700+ people and growing every day. Stunning to think that in the Fall of 2008 I had less than 20 LinkedIn connections and today if my LinkedIn network if it were a country is now the 69th largest in the world. LinkedIn is a fabulous tool to network with folks that are primarily engaged in networking for business reasons rather than other platforms that encourage people to share stories and pictures of their cats eating cheeseburgers.
