There are now 1 billion Endorsements on LinkedIn, an impressive figure for a feature released just six months ago.
As the infographic below shows, some 50 million Endorsements are batted around the business-friendly social network each week and “strategic planning” is the most popular subject for an Endorsement
Introduced in September, Endorsements represented a frictionless alternative to formal recommendations. Instead of going to the trouble of writing up a formal recommendation, you merely have to click a button to endorse someone
The ease of use, however, has simultaneously made Endorsements ubiqutious and meaningless. However, LinkedIn is clearly pleased with its accomplishment.
