The career-focused social network LinkedIn announced Friday it has 300 million members, with more than half the total outside the United States. "While this is an exciting moment, we still have a long way to go to realize our vision of creating economic opportunity for every one of the 3.3 billion people in the global workforce," said LinkedIn vice president Deep Nishar in a blog posting. Nishar said that for future growth, the company believes it will be more important to get people using the network on mobile devices. Already, our members in dozens of locations including Costa Rica, Malaysia, Singapore, Sweden, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom, use LinkedIn more on their mobile devices than on their desktop computers."
