Professional social networking platform LinkedIn now has 100 million members in India, up 19 percent year-on-year, Microsoft Chairman and CEO Satya Nadella has said.
Microsoft-owned LinkedIn saw record engagement in the March quarter as more than 930 million members worldwide now turn to the professional social network to connect, learn, sell and get hired.
“Member growth accelerated for the seventh consecutive quarter as we expanded into new audiences. We now have 100 million members in India, up 19 percent,” Nadella said during the company’s Q3 2023 earnings call late Tuesday.
As Gen Z enters the workforce, “we saw a 73 percent year-over-year increase in student enrollment,” Nadella added.
LinkedIn Talent Solutions continues to help hirers connect with job seekers and professionals to build the skills they need to take advantage of opportunities.
“Our recruiting business gained market share for the third consecutive quarter. The excitement around AI is creating new opportunities in every function from marketing, sales and finance to software development and security,” said Nadella.
LinkedIn revenue was up 8 percent for the tech giant in the March quarter. In 2016, Microsoft acquired LinkedIn for more than $26 billion.
The platform has introduced new AI-powered features, including writing suggestions for member profiles and job descriptions and collaboration articles.
“Our exclusive partnership with Netflix brings differentiated premium video content to our ad network, and our new Copilot for the web is changing everyday search and web habits,” said Nadella.
