LinkedIn looks at setting up operation in China
Professional networking site LinkedIn Corp appears to be making preparations to start operations in China, the country with the world’s largest Internet population.
The California-based firm has made some major moves recently that have been seen as steps towards officially expanding its service into China.
Founded in 2003, LinkedIn has grown to be the world’s largest professional network on the Internet with more than 200 million members. While LinkedIn has no Chinese-language site yet, it does have 4 million registered users from the country.
China is home to 618 million Internet users and 500 million mobile web users as of the end of last year.
