The Portrait of a LinkedIn User in 2013 [INFOGRAPHIC]


According to this infographic, two people join LinkedIn every second of every day. It then proceeds to ask “Then what?”

“How are they using it and is it really helping them?” this infographic from Power Formula asks.

According to the infographic, though LinkedIn has a paid option, 84.4 percent of people who use it use the free version of the social networking site. That is, just 15.1 percent pay to use linkedIn. There is a small number of LinkedIn users (0.5 percent) who are not sure whether they use the free or the paid version of the professional-leaning social network.

When it comes to first-level connections – that is, the people a user is directly connected to – the largest group is at 500 to 999 connections (21.7 percent). The smallest group is not those with fewer connections, it’s those who have 300 or more connections (1.3 percent).
