LinkedIn to Shutter Localized Version of Its Platform for China

Standalone jobs app InJobs will be rolled out there later this year


LinkedIn said Thursday that it will sunset the localized version of its platform in China, which it debuted in February 2014, due to “a significantly more challenging operating environment and greater compliance requirements.”

The professional network is not bailing on the sizable market, saying that it will roll out standalone jobs application InJobs in China later this year. The app will not have a social feed or a way to share posts or articles,

LinkedIn will also continue to work with businesses in the country to help them create economic opportunity.
