LinkedIn reaches 100 million members worldwide

SYDNEY, Australia — 23rd March, 2011 - LinkedIn today announced reaching a major milestone in its development: 100 million professionals are now members of the largest professional network worldwide.

This means a steady growth of roughly one million new LinkedIn members every week, the equivalent of a professional joining the site at faster than one member per second.

LinkedIn is also rapidly growing its network globally with more than half of its membership base outside of the U.S. LinkedIn set up a direct presence in Sydney in January 2010 and now has over 1.5 million members in Australia and New Zealand.
