LinkedIn is huge with teachers and education professionals. According to today’s release from the social network, there are now more than 100 Million users on LinkedIn. Just how many of those are teachers? Turns out a LOT. Nearly 1 Million teachers are currently using the service.
Here are some of the most intriguing stats from LinkedIn’s infographic:
- 56% of LinkedIn’s users are outside of the United States. LinkedIn is experiencing its fastest growth internationally.
- LinkedIn’s fastest-growing country is Brazil, with 428% growth year-over-year. Brazil is followed by Mexico, India and France.
- The height of LinkedIn activity happens during the workday, peaking at around noon. Mobile usage, on the other hand, typically peaks around 8:00 p.m.
- There are almost 1 million teachers on LinkedIn; 20% of the site’s users work in the service sector, while 9% work in finance and another 9% are in the high-tech industry.
For most of its 7-plus years of existence, LinkedIn has dominated its niche of social business users. The result is a valuation nearing $3 billion and 5.5 billion monthly pageviews. While it’s no Facebook, we bet most people would love to be in LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman’s shoes right now.
