LinkedIn officially debuts Arabic for the Middle East

Today, LinkedIn has announced that it’s launching Arabic language support for the website. The official announcement came from LinkedIn’s website, with Noura Al Kaabi (CEO of twofour54) attending a special event held at LinkedIn’s new Middle East headquarters for the announcement. It’s quite a major milestone, especially when there are more than 13M users across the Middle East and North Africa region. UAE and Saudi Arabia take the lead in terms of user base, with the former being in first position. With more than 340M+ users worldwide on LinkedIn, it makes good sense that the language has been added for users in this region.

Expect many Middle East-only brands to start building up their corporate presence on LinkedIn, along with new members looking to join the network. You can learn more by visiting the Arabic section on LinkedIn. If you’re looking to switch over to Arabic, visit this link to get started.

Facebook has more than 79M users across the Middle East and North Africa region, and they added Arabic. One of Twitter’s Top 5 usage markets is Saudi Arabia, and they supported Arabic with the work of Taghreedat. Google and YouTube are used widely across the region and they also added Arabic support. Now you can add LinkedIn to this group of social networks.

Serving to highlight the impact of Arabic on LinkedIn, here’s a nice infographic they made to best summarize the significant impact it will have for their users.
