Speaking at the Web 2.o Summit, LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner said Linked has 85 million members and is adding a new member every second or 86,400 members a day and over 2 million a month.
It took the company 477 days to get their first million and only 9 days to get the last million, Weiner said.
The members differ from Facebook as the site is generally not used by teens and younger - a number that swells the 500 million users of Facebook. "We have begun to establish critical mass, especially on a global basis," said Weiner.
