Atlanta Reaches One Million LinkedIn Users

My friend, Eric Jaquith, predicted this last month and now it is true. Atlanta has over one million LinkedIn profiles. There are only four other metro areas with more users: New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Chicago.

For those of us based in Atlanta, this is a reminder of how social networking has revolutionized our careers. There is a collaborative community of significant digital, technical, telecom, financial, social, marketing and recruiting talent based in Atlanta.

Here are the top five most connected LinkedIn users in the greater Atlanta area:

1.  Shally Steckerl

2.  Jim Browning

3.  Jenny DeVaughn

4.  Glen Cathey

5.  Muhammad Siddique

The top five companies with the most current and former employees in the greater Atlanta area with LinkedIn profiles are: AT&T, Delta Air Lines, The Home Depot, Emory University and the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech).

Start connecting with these influencers in Atlanta, including me. I welcome all invites.
