LinkedIn, Microsoft’s largest professional social networking site, is still closed in China. Their global site has been withdrawn from China. Instead, the American company plans to continue operating in the country as a regular site hosting only job listings.
In China, LinkedIn is the latest victim of the Xi Jinping government’s imposition of laws on Internet companies. It is also one of the last Western social media networks to exist in the Chinese market. LinkedIn, a networking site related to employment, has stopped operating, citing Chinese operating rules as a challenge.
