🎉 Celebrating 20 years on LinkedIn! 🎉

Yes, on 20 December 2003, I joined LinkedIn as member number 77,832!

If you want to find out your LinkedIn member number, go to your Settings Page, right click on your mouse (using laptop or desktop computer) and choose ‘View Page Source’ then from your browser, choose ‘Find on Page’ and look for the word ‘member’ and next to it, you will find your LinkedIn Member number!

📈In the last year, my content has received 215,316 views!

I hope that most of you found the content helpful!

I now have a total of 24,556 Connections🤝and 27,953 Followers 👍

The cool part is that LinkedIn Follower Numbers now appear in Google search results!

Dear Sue

I want to personally thank you because you were one of LinkedIn’s first 100,000 members (member number 877,832 in fact!*). In any technology adoption lifecycle, there are the innovators, those who help lead the way. That was you.

We hit a big milestone at LinkedIn this week when our 100 millionthm member joined the site.

When we founded LinkedIn, our vision was to help the world’s professionals be more successful and productive. Today, with your help, LinkedIn is changing the lives of millions of members by helping them connect with others, find jobs, get insights, start a business, and much more.

We are grateful for your support and look forward to helping you accomplish much more in the years to come. I hope that you are having a great year.
