You have to check out this new LinkedIn Infographic. It’s full of amazing facts, some of which I’d like to share below.
LinkedIn just surpassed the 100 million users mark. That’s larger than the population of Germany or France. It might not be as controversial as Facebook, or as easy to use as Twitter, but it definitely has its place amongst professionals.
44 million of those users reside in the United States. The fastest growing country is Brazil (it must be because of that Nils Montan guy!).
997,000 of the users are teachers and there’s even one martini whisperer.
LinkedIn is a lot more than just an online resume now. You showcase your skills, publications and expertise in a purely business manner. For LinkedIn to be beneficial in any way attorneys must ensure their information is up to date, partake in group discussions and import their offline business contacts.
If I had to pick one social media platform for lawyers (right now, it may change later) it would be LinkedIn. How about you?
