Microsoft-owned professional social network, LinkedIn, announced on Wednesday that it has reached the impressive figure of one billion members and is implementing more artificial intelligence features for its premium users.
By surpassing the one billion user mark, LinkedIn, where members maintain profiles similar to resumes with their educational background, work experience, and professional skills, positions itself at the top of social networks, rivaling platforms like Meta Platforms.
The company reports that nearly 80% of new members come from outside the United States. LinkedIn offers a free membership level, but also provides subscriptions starting at $30 per month. Subscribers at the $40 per month level will have access to new AI features that can indicate to a user browsing through numerous job postings whether they are a suitable candidate, based on their profile information. The system can also suggest profile changes to enhance the user’s competitiveness.
The tool is designed to help users transition from simply reviewing jobs and feeling uncertain to making significant strides in a single session, all the way to a full interaction, as stated by Tomer Cohen, LinkedIn’s Product Director, in an interview.
Additionally, LinkedIn introduced on Wednesday a button that will summarize lengthy posts into a few key bullet points tailored to each user, offering different insights based on the user’s profile, for example, providing a specific view for a sales professional and a different one for a stockbroker.
