The Science of Quality Growth

Analyses and A/B testing shows that increasing our Quality Signup rate causes an increase in our long-term engagement rate.   The concept of a custom true-north metric is not unique to LinkedIn. In fact, many other companies have similar measures that serve as their true-north metric for growth. For example, Facebook is known to track users who connect with 10 friends in seven days. Pinterest tracks Weekly Active Repinners. And Slack tracks teams who have sent 2,000 messages. For the…
