LinkedIn has crossed the 13 million members mark India and India has now become the second largest user base for LinkedIn in the world (behind USA). LinkedIn launched its India operations in November 2009.
The site had around 3.4 million users in 2009 and has added almost 10 million users since then. In June it had crossed the milestone of 10 million registered users in India so it has added around 3 million users in the past six months.
According to Hari Krishnan, country manager at LinkedIn India, “Scaling up our India operations is a key focus area for us. We already have three Sales and marketing offices in the country; one each in Mumbai, Gurgaon and Bengaluru.”
