  • Professionals are turning to LinkedIn Learning more than ever to increase their knowledge capital, watching more than 1 million hours of content each week, more than double the amount a year ago.

  • This quarter, we also launched our most significant redesign in years, including a new look, streamlined search and messaging experience, as well as a new way of connecting and sharing with Stories.

  • In Marketing Solutions, advertiser demand on LinkedIn returned to near pre-COVID-19 levels, up 40% year-over-year, as marketers use our tools to connect with professionals ready to do business.
