Who's Who expands to Kenya

Who’s Who, an online information resource about noteworthy individuals, is expanding to Kenya.

Currently billed as the leading guide to “everyone who’s anyone” in the region, Who’s Who Southern Africa allows business and social leaders to showcase their professional history, skills and achievements. The rankings assigned to each profile allow members to see how they rank against other professionals in the network and serve as a yardstick for measuring areas of progress and development.

Following its launch as a free personal branding platform for professionals in Southern Africa, Who's Who has seen an exponential growth in registrations of more than 470% since opening up its membership to a larger audience in 2010.

The owner of the title, Naspers Labs, says Who’s Who is now launching in Kenya, the first of a number of countries on the continent it plans to expand into over the next few years.

The company says: “Given the record of accomplishment of its foregoer and the rapid growth in social networking and blogging among internet-savvy Kenyans, the platform is also set to become a leading source of information for the media, researchers and the public.”
