A Comprehensive Look at LinkedIn's Seven Million Canadian Users - Techvibes.com

A Comprehensive Look at LinkedIn's Seven Million Canadian Users - Techvibes.com | How to use LinkedIn | Scoop.it

LinkedIn now boasts more than 200 million users.

We know that seven million of those are Canadian. But LinkedIn doesn't really break down stats beyond that. 20% of Canadians use the professionally oriented social networking site, but what do we really know about these members? Not a whole lot.

 

Edmonton's FixedSocial decided to change that. The digital marketing consultancy broke down a bunch of data on Canadian users to provide us with one of a comprehensive look at LinkedIn members in Canada, building a custom infographic exclusively for Techvibes.
