A platform formed primarily for professional networking, it brings something to the table that networks like Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest do not. LinkedIn encourages users to showcase their job skills, resumes, employment goals and more, and is also a great place for businesses to connect with current customers, prospective clients and both current and prospective employees. Still not convinced? Read on for 10 LinkedIn stats that will leave you in love.
