Over the past few years, LinkedIn has seen a steady growth in user base in the Republic of Korea. This upward trajectory is not only reflective of our commitment to connecting professionals globally, but also mirrors the increasing recognition of the power of professional networking among South Korean professionals.
In January 2021, we had almost 3 million users in Korea, making up 5.7% of the entire population. Fast forward a year, and we welcomed an additional 200,000 users, pushing our penetration to 6.1% of the population by January 2022.
What's more exciting to observe is the consistent interest among the 25 to 34-year-old demographic, the linkedIn user growth in South Korea. Starting at 2 million users in this age bracket in 2021, we experienced a 5% increase within a year, with the number climbing to 2.1 million in 2022. By May 2023, we proudly serve around 2.4 million South Korean professionals in this age group.
This is a clear testament to the expanding influence of LinkedIn in the South Korean professional world. We look forward to fostering stronger, more fruitful professional connections in the future. Thank you for growing with us!
