Congratulations! You have one of the top 5% most viewed LinkedIn profiles for 2012

(This article will take 2 minutes to read)

I recieved an email this morning to tell me that I was in the top 5% of 200,000,000 people who have had the highest number of profile views in 2012. It was a nice touch, but after doing a little research on twitter and the web I coudnt help thinking that it was a bit of a marketing ploy !

Top 5% would mean that 10,000,000 people would have got a similar email, and I assume that is globally because my research showed people from all over the world, but mainly North America of course where most of the LinkedIn subcribers reside according to LinkedIn. See the infographic below:

Maybe living in Africa this means that I am even more special....ha ha, it truly is Vanity Friday !

So who else got one ?
