Favorite Friday: LinkedIn “Busted Right Through” 8 Million Members

November 3rd, 2006: Hot off the press! LinkedIn milestone!

Wow, a walk down memory lane!

Almost five years ago I was so excited they had gotten to 8 million members.  Now they are supposedly over 110M.  I had some thoughts, including (see post for details):

  • How come they haven’t grown as fast as MySpace?
  • How helpful is this, really, for my networking and job search efforts?
  • Should I get an account now, and really beef up my networking?
  • When I get an account, I’m done, right?
  • What about … the others??

I really wrote too much back then… very long blog posts. But this was a fun bit of history to stumble upon 🙂
