Microsoft announced that it would discontinue its LinkedIn service in the country at the end of the year, citing the tightening of Internet rules in China.
Microsoft announced in a written statement that it would close its professional network LinkedIn due to the significantly challenging operating environment and tightening regulations in China.
On the other hand, the company has developed a new application called InJobs that will replace LinkedIn in the country.
SOCIAL PARTS CANNOT BE CARRIED OUT
It was announced that InJobs, which preserves LinkedIn’s ability to connect with others, will not have social sharing opportunities.
LinkedIn, which was acquired by Microsoft in 2016, stopped recruiting new members in the country in March, and China discovered in May that Microsoft’s Bing search engine and LinkedIn were using user information inappropriately and requested a solution to the problem.
Google pulled its search engine out of China in 2010 after the Chinese government censored YouTube videos.
