“Every day, an average of 15 million profile views, 1.45 million job views and 44,000 job applications in 200 countries happen through mobile devices,” according to professional networking site, LinkedIn.
According to a statement released by the company, the UAE was identified as one of the few markets in the world from where a majority of members access the platform using mobile devices. It confirmed that more than half of GCC LinkedIn members access the platform using mobile devices.
“The UAE already accounts for more than one million LinkedIn members and is the biggest LinkedIn member base in the Middle East region. Now, more than 50 per cent of these users access their online professional profiles via mobile devices, including mobile phones and tablet devices,” reads the statement.
Ali Matar, head of talent solutions at LinkedIn Mena, says: “Our adoption in the GCC and broader region reflects the multi-cultural composition of the workforce and the early adoption of global best practices among the business and professional community here.”
Founded in 2003, the professional internet network announced today (Sunday, May 4) that it has reached 300 million members in more than 200 countries and territories. The company has added more than 23 million members since its last announcement on February 6.
