David Beckham wasn’t the only one to celebrate a birthday this week, as social networking platform LinkedIn also reached a pretty epic milestone. It might be hard to believe, but it has in fact been 15 years since LinkedIn first launched, which is a very significant feat in this fast-paced world of digital!
