Microsoft shutting down LinkedIn in China

Microsoft shutting down LinkedIn in China

Microsoft-owned LinkedIn is closing its localized Chinese version of the platform later this year to replace it with a limited version focusing only on jobs. The Chinese version of the platform was launched seven years ago.

LinkedIn said in a blog post that it is “facing a significantly more challenging operating environment and greater compliance requirements in China. Given this, we’ve made the decision to sunset the current localized version of LinkedIn, which is how people in China access LinkedIn’s global social media platform, later this year.”

The company also said that ”while we’ve found success in helping Chinese members find jobs and economic opportunity, we have not found that same level of success in the more social aspects of sharing and staying informed.”

”Later this year, we will launch InJobs, a new, standalone jobs application for China. InJobs will not include a social feed or the ability to share posts or articles. We will also continue to work with Chinese businesses to help them create economic opportunity.”
