LinkedIn Wiki

LinkedIn () is a business and employment-oriented service that operates via websites and mobile apps. Founded on December 28, 2002, and launched on May 5, 2003, it is mainly used for professional networking, including employers posting jobs and job seekers posting their CVs. As of 2015, most of the company's revenue came from selling access to information about its members to recruiters and sales professionals. As of October 2018, LinkedIn had 590 million registered members in 200 countries, out of which more than 250 million active users. LinkedIn allows members (both workers and employers) to create profiles and "connections" to each other in an online social network which may represent real-world professional relationships. Members can invite anyone (whether an existing member or not) to become a connection. The "gated-access approach" (where contact with any professional requires either an existing relationship or an introduction through a contact of theirs) is intended to build trust among the service's members. Since December 2016 it has been a wholly-owned subsidiary of Microsoft. LinkedIn participated in the EU's International Safe Harbor Privacy Principles.
