MUMBAI: For all the tech giants, India is becoming a high potential market very fast. Microsoft-owned professional networking platform LinkedIn has crossed the 50 million user mark in the country. The company which rolled out in 2009 had only 3.4 million users then, whereas now India is the second largest market globally.

“Our members-first, localised approach has helped us cross the 50-million mark in India. We are at the beginning of an exciting journey, as we democratise opportunity for every member of the Indian workforce," LinkedIn country manager and international product head Akshay Kothari said.

The company has doubled its user base in the last four years on the platform. In future, the company will continue to focus on students, career starters, and professionals, beyond knowledge workers.

For localisation of the platform, the company took several initiatives. In 2016, it launched the LinkedIn Lite website targeted for areas where internet connection is slow. The company has come up with an app version of LinkedIn Lite for Android users also.
