    The professional social network LinkedIn has hit a milestone--300 million members, and it appears the Mountain View-based service is growing fast.

    Just 15 months ago, there were 200 million members. The company said its vision is to create economic opportunity for all of the 3.3 billion people in the global workforce.

    For a bit of perspective, Facebook hit 1.3 billion users in January.
