“While we’ve had success in helping Chinese users find jobs and economic opportunities, we haven’t had the same level of success in the more social aspects of sharing and staying informed,” according to LinkedIn.
As a result, the corporation isn’t fully quitting China. It’s developing InJobs, a standalone job board app without a social feed or a method to exchange posts or articles.
When LinkedIn first started in China in February 2014, it agreed to censor certain information. In March, the business temporarily barred new Chinese users from signing up as it checked to see if it was complying with the country’s regulations. A few months later, China said that 105 apps, including LinkedIn, had broken data collecting laws.
The Microsoft-owned service was the last major American social network with an official presence in China.
