LinkedIn hits a million UK members. Suggests pint.

LinkedIn says it has reached the significant marker of a million members in the UK, with more than two thousand British professionals signing up on any given day. The firm is celebrating with some member events in London (full, alas), Birmingham and Manchester. To celebrate, LinkedIn suggests we all go “out for a pint and all that.” Geez, with that kind of cultural localisation, it really is amazing to think they made it this far.

Meanwhile, Facebook is undoubtedly putting on many more members than that daily and is already the biggest social network in the UK. What’s the betting a hefty proportion of those members are professionals?
