LinkedIn signs up millionth time-wasting business person in the UK

Web 2.0

LinkedIn is celebrating distracting business-minded people signing up its millionth UK-based user, and has awarded each of those million people a special little badge to stick on their profiles.

Whilst one million users in the UK doesn’t seem that impressive, the 16 million they have worldwide surely is. It’s obviously no Facebook, at 54 million users (as of mid-November), but considering it’s a social-networking site aimed purely at business-people, it’s not too shabby, either.
