LinkedIn is a business and employment-focused internet service that operates through websites and mobile applications globally. The website, which was established in 2003, is mostly used for business networking, and it allows job seekers to upload their CVs and companies to offer vacancies. The majority of the company's revenue is generated by offering recruiters as well as sales professionals access to the information on its members. The corporation has been a completely owned subsidiary of Microsoft since its inception. LinkedIn has around 740 million registered users from 150 different countries. The platform enables users (both employees and employers) to build profiles and 'link' with one another in an online social network, that may represent real-world professional relationships.
