How long have you been a member on LinkedIn?

February 11, 2019 / in LinkedIn / by

I was doing LinkedIn training for a sales team recently, and the question came up… “how long have you been on LinkedIn?” I knew I’d set up my account around 2006-2007, but I didn’t know the exact date. I knew that I could find it in my account settings. So I went and took a look…

August 25, 2006

I opened my account on LinkedIn.com on August 25, 2006. It surprised me that I’ve been using LinkedIn for almost 14 years. That’s a LONG time when you are talking about something on the web.

I was an “early” adopter, but most people don’t realize that LinkedIn was launched in 2003. (Go here for more on the history of how LinkedIn got started.) That’s why I put “early” in quotes… because I joined 3 years after they started the site. But I can say I was an early adopter because most people weren’t using LinkedIn when I joined. I would look for friends, peers and clients, and maybe 10-20 percent of them had profiles on the site.

Here’s how to find out when you opened your LinkedIn account

  • Log into Linked.com
  • Click on Me | Settings & Privacy
  • Look at the top left under your name for Member since…

LinkedIn Member Since 2006

  1. Thanks Jason….interesting to think about how long Social Media has been around. I have been on LinkedIn since February 7, 2005.

  2. September 17, 2007. I thought I was early on it, but didn’t realize LinkedIn had been around that long!
