The top 10 companies on LinkedIn
Users on LinkedIn can be linked to a company in one of two ways; by being an employee or by following the company. The top 10 followed companies on LinkedIn are IBM, HP, Accenture, Microsoft, Oracle, Deloitte, PwC, Cisco, Apple, Google.
When looking at theses top ten companies on LinkedIn in more detail it becomes clear that there is a leader in both the number of followers and the number of employees on LinkedIn:
The chart shows there’s a clear trend between the size of the company (based on the number of employees on the platform) and the number of followers it has.
On average, each company has almost 2.5 followers for each employee on the site.
However, there are a couple of ‘top performers’ – Apple has six followers to every employee while Google has eight. Perhaps this is not suprising given the ‘aspirational’ nature of both these brands from a professional and personal perspective.
