LinkedIn routinely scores high in these types of searches, not surprising since this international networking site attracts huge numbers of participants and visitors. Moreover, most people or starting entrepreneurs do not have a website or a well-functioning one, which often makes this the only source. In 2017, over 4.2 million Dutch used Linkedin on a monthly basis. Over 19% used mobile devices (e.g. smartphones or tablets) for this purpose. These 6 million users visit Linkedin on average 2 times a month. The ratio of men to women is 51% vs. 49%. Yet 68% of the visitors who visit Linkedin monthly are male. (Source: Recruitingroundtable).
