LinkedIn has hit a major milestone.
The online social network for professionals and jobseekers now boasts 100-million members worldwide. The company says more than half of its members are outside the U.S. It also estimates it’s growing at the rate of about one-million new members each week. LinkedIn is positioning itself to cash in on the global interest in privately held Internet companies like Facebook and Twitter. Company officials hope to raise 175-million dollars in an initial public stock offering.
