Social Media Stats You Should Care About: LinkedIn (Part 3)

Welcome to Part 3 of a 3-part series on social media statistics. We’ve already noted some very impressive statistics on Facebook and Twitter. Today, we’ll look at LinkedIn – that more ‘professional’ social media cousin – and see what the numbers show.

LinkedIn is often referred to as “Facebook for professionals.” Less of a friend and photo sharing site, it is a networking site for professionals the world over to share they careers, skills, job opportunities and more.

As of November 2011, LinkedIn boasted 135 users across 200 countries, 57 million of them in the United States. What’s more, professionals are signing up to join LinkedIn at a rate of more than two new members per second.

LinkedIn can provide an outstanding platform to build your brand, detail your professional achievements and receive accolades and recommendations from your clients, colleagues and business associates.

The site also provides a unique way to collaborate and resolve business challenges with other professionals in your line of business. Join relevant real estate groups, ask questions, share challenges and solutions, network, find similarities, ask for help, offer and seek for jobs, and explore opportunities.

You see, LinkedIn members are sharing insights and knowledge in more than 1 million groups, and 75 of the Fortune 100 companies now use LinkedIn as part of their corporate hiring solution.

LinkedIn is an incredible supplement to your online social media presence. It allows you to paint an extremely detailed picture of yourself and your business, to better showcase your website, your properties for sale, your activities, and more. It’s time to get involved.

The result: when it’s time for people to use a real estate agent, they are more likely to pick you as their agent.
