20 Years on LinkedIn
I was fortunate to join LinkedIn on 21 December 2003 and I received a notification from LinkedIn to remind me about it!
When I clicked on this notification, I saw the following on my screen
And then they ‘pre-prepared’ some content for me…
Of course, me being me, I had a little fiddle with it and produced the following post – and I would again like to reiterate, thank you everyone for being a part of my journey on LinkedIn!
🎉 Celebrating 20 years on LinkedIn! 🎉
Yes, on 20 December 2003, I joined LinkedIn as member number 77,832!
