LinkedIn today announced that the current localized version of LinkedIn in China will be discontinued later this year. LinkedIn will be replacing the current LinkedIn service with InJobs, a new, standalone jobs application for China. Unlike LinkedIn, InJobs will not include a social feed or the ability to share posts or articles.
Our new strategy for China is to put our focus on helping China-based professionals find jobs in China and Chinese companies find quality candidates.
LinkedIn decided to discontinue the service since it is facing a significantly more challenging operating environment and greater compliance requirements in China.
