India has become the second largest market for LinkedIn, the Microsoft-owned professional-networking firm, with a 24% jump in its Indian user base in the past one year, taking the total to over 62 million users, second only to US, the company’s home market.
“India is the second-largest market after US and the biggest in the Asia Pacific region. We also have roughly over a half a million companies, and half a million active jobs posting on the platform from India. We have grown 20X since launching in India, which is phenomenal, and specifically we have doubled our member base in the last four years,” Ashutosh Gupta, LinkedIn’s country manager for India, told ET.
The first made in India product, LinkedIn Lite, has already been launched in over 60 markets and crossed 10 million downloads.
