LinkedIn shut down in China after almost seven years of operation

The popular job search social network LinkedIn, which is owned by Microsoft Corp, announced that it would stop serving users from China after nearly seven years of entering this market. The company said that this decision was influenced by business repression by Chinese authorities and increased regulatory requirements.

In its current form, the platform will operate in China until the end of 2021, after which Chinese users will have access to a stripped-down version of InJobs, where it will only be possible to search for jobs, but will not be able to send personal messages and share information.
