Statistics: Who uses LinkedIn

Here are statistics from data collected in early 2017 by Pew Research Center about LinkedIn users.  All data is based on the percentage of U.S. adults who use social media.  Before marketing to your customers, you need to know where you can find them.  LinkedIn is the platform for professionals and marketing business to business (B2B).  A majority of users are educated and are high income earners.  Keep this in mind when marketing your product or service on LinkedIn, and know what to post and what not to post.
