Yesterday I received an email from LinkedIn (the professional networking site) explaining that they were celebrating reaching over 200 million members.
The email congratulated me on having one of the top 5% most viewed profiles for 2012.
See the screenshot of the email below (click on the image to see the full letter):
I know that this is LinkedIn promoting itself, but to be in the top 5% of 200 million is pretty cool.
Only me and 9,999,999* other people received this email, it makes you feel special and unique.
Here is the link to my profile if you are a LinkedIn user and don't yet have me added as a contact (click on the logo below):
Thanks for your support.
PS: Congrats to all those who got a Top 1%, 5% or 10% email message. It means you and only 1,999,999 (for 1%), 9,999,999 (for 5%) or 19,999,999 (for 10%) other people also received the same email.
PPS: * Or if we want to get more technical: the figures should be you and only 1,999,999 (for 1%), 8,000,000 (for 2-5%) and 10,000,000 (for 6-10%) other people as the others received different percentage emails.
PPPS: Happy Valentines Day. :-)
Good job buddy!
Wow. I personally wished you to be on top 1%. At the same time, I am happy because I too am part of that top 5% club. :-)
Fair calculation and Good analysis David.
Ha :) I wish I hadn't read that post - was feeling more special till you broke down the numbers.
I too got top 5 % email :)
I also got top 5%
