One in 10 Dutch LinkedIn users is a manager or an owner

Of the four million people in the Netherlands now using the social networking site LinkedIn, over one in 10 describe themselves as managers in their profile, free newspaper Spits reports on Wednesday.

In total, 442,000 say they are managers, 413,000 are company owners and 205,543 are directors ‘who would appear to have enough time to surf the internet’, Spits says.

The Netherlands, with a population of almost 17 million, passed the four million LinkedIn account mark last month.
