Today is the third day of the lunar new year and I received a rather interesting email from ‘Deep Nishar, Senior Vice President, Products & User Experience’ of LinkedIn, informing me that;
Dr. Adam, congratulations!
You have one of the top 1% most viewed LinkedIn profiles for 2012.
LinkedIn now has 200 million members. Thanks for
playing a unique part in our community!
Hmm, 1% of 200 million translates to 2,000,000 profiles so that’s a lot of profiles out there (1,999,999 others to be exact) that also falls within the top 1%. (the bane of being a Mensan…. I dissected the fluff immediately, should have basked in the ‘glory’ first.)
Having said that, being informed that I have have one of the top 1% most viewed LinkedIn profiles for 2012 (out of 200 million) is kind of cool.
Update: I added the screenshot of the email as to help better visualise the blog post.
