LinkedIn membership numbers for January 2024

I’ll keep this page up to date but you can always see the current official figures via the LinkedIn Pressroom.

How many active LinkedIn users are in Europe?

Between 31 July 2023 and 31 December 2023, LinkedIn had a monthly average of 47.9M logged-in users in the EU (does not include the UK).

The number of EU-based LinkedIn accounts on 29 April 2024 was ~142M, based on a People search of the 27 member states of the EU.

Given LinkedIn’s typical growth per quarter, it’s reasonable to estimate that there would have been ~135M members in the EU between 31 July 2023 and 31 December 2023.

This means that:

Approximately 35% of LinkedIn users in the EU logged in to the platform in the second half of 2023.

Additionally, there were 178.2M LinkedIn site visits from EU-based users who were in a logged-out state.

Why these numbers matter.

LinkedIn is still a great place to reach your audience without having to pay for ads.

But that free organic reach is unlikely to last forever.

To buffer yourself from the potential future issues with organic reach for your content, it’s a good idea to build your audience now.

Since the start of 2017, I’ve been doing this by getting involved in as many public and private conversations on LinkedIn as I can. This is what helps people remember and care about me and my work.

The best thing to do to defeat the algorithms is to get people to care about you. When they do, it doesn’t matter what the algorithms do – you’ll always be someone people seek and find.
