Professional networking site’s recent achievement of earning 300 million members a part of the firm’s vision.

Business-oriented social networking site LinkedIn has earned 300 million members worldwide.

According to its media statement, this milestone is apparently an important step towards realizing LinkedIn’s vision of creating economic opportunity for every one of the 3.3 billion people in the global workforce.

To achieve this said vision, LinkedIn has been delivering personalized experiences built around members and their identity, network and knowledge with products and content such as Pulse, Influencer posts from over 500 leading business minds, and much more.

Additionally, LinkedIn intends to ride on the mobile trend, where mobile accounts for more than half of all global traffic. In fact, it sees a daily average of 15 million profile views, 1.45 million job views and 44,000 job applications in over 200 countries through mobile. As such, the company has stated that it plans to expand its mobile app portfolio, focusing on more strategic pairings with companies like Apple, Nokia and Samsung in the mobile space this year.
