LinkedIn Grows To 500M Users

Microsoft's business-centric social network LinkedIn now has more than 500 million users. The company announced its milestone in a blog post, revealing it has gained around 33 million people since late 2016. Microsoft acquired the network last year.

LinkedIn didn't break down the 500 million figure any further, though Apptopia claims the network has around 250 million monthly active users on mobile.

It's trying to boost engagement with new features, including some improvements to the My Network area. LinkedIn will now share stats about your connections, such as who is most connected and who has the most mutual connections.
