Fastest growing countries on LinkedIn in Europe - August 2019

Germany and France are catching up with the rest of Western Europe.

When we look at the data we have regarding the number of LinkedIn accounts in Europe over the past twelve months, we see some surprising outcomes.

Smaller countries like Andorra (77.000 habitants) and Montenegro (629.000 habitants) are really stepping up.

Poland has been on my radar for a longer time, because I see a lot interesting LinkedIn experts over there sharing interesting stuff. So their efforts as ambassadors are really working with a growth of more than 16%.

Germany, is finally getting rid of the dominance of Xing and is getting a serious market for LinkedIn.

What’s remarkable in this overview is that Russia is growing with more than 15%. In Russia, LinkedIn is officially blocked because the data of Russian users is not stored in Russia.
