News Byte: LinkedIn Surpasses 300 Million Subscribers
LinkedIn snags its 300 millionth executive.
LinkedIn announced today that it had passed the 300 million member milestone. Two thirds of the total are non-U.S. residents.

SVP Products and User Experience Deep Nishar wrote in a blog today that mobile adoption of the platform provided the momentum to push LinkedIn over the 300 million mark, noting that nearly half of LinkedIn's traffic arrives via mobile devices.

“Two years ago we started developing multiple LinkedIn mobile apps to fit the different needs of our diverse members,” wrote Nishar, adding that more apps tailored to member-specific use cases were in development via partnerships with Apple, Nokia, and Samsung.

Nishar reported that LinkedIn draws 15 million profile views and 1.45 million job views daily. The company is looking for significant growth in China, where it launched a beta version of a simplified Chinese site earlier this year.
