LinkedIn, professional network service is reporting that the company has acheived a major milestone of 10 million members in India.
"When we opened the LinkedIn India offices in November 2009 with just over 3 million members, we worked with the mindset of a startup. Our primary focus was to continue to help professionals become productive and successful. This way, we knew that as long as we continued creating value for Indian professionals, they would join the website and continue to engage with one another," stated LinkedIn.
"Whether it was college students or brands and businesses all are using the site in larger numbers to engage with their members and generate word of mouth around their products and services. For example: less than a month since the launch of LinkedIn's Company Pages in India, more than 2700 professionals recommended products by Volkswagen India to members in their network," the company noted.
