Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) unplugs LinkedIn in China about seven years after its launch and replaces it with a simplified version of its work-focused platform.
LinkedIn is the only major social network owned by the United States, and the government requires such platforms to comply with strict rules and regulations.
“China is also facing very demanding operational environments and rising compliance requirements,” LinkedIn said in a Thursday blog post, achieving the same level of success in the more social aspects of sharing and disseminating information. He added that he couldn’t. It has worldwide.
LinkedIn has said it will replace a Chinese service that restricts posting of certain content due to regulatory requirements with a new portal called InJobs.
The new service, launched later this year, does not include the ability to share social feeds or posts or articles.
California-based LinkedIn, which was acquired by Microsoft in 2016, has social media-like features that make it easier to connect with each other while building a professional network, among employers, employees, and job seekers. It is very popular worldwide.
