LinkedIn ChinaNow, if you enter the URL directly in the "lingying.com", will be directed directly to the world's largest professional social network - LinkedIn official website. This means that LinkedIn has acquired lingying.com domain. And if by setting the LinkedIn website language to Simplified Chinese, you will find that it has more than a new Chinese name: "collar Britain."
In the right side of the site, you will find " expansion brought the British vein , grasp the unlimited opportunities" Slogan, and the addition of Sina Weibo and Tencent Weibo as an option to add contacts. Furthermore , called " collar British network" LinkedIn China also provides NetEase mailbox , QQ mailbox , Gmail mailbox Outlook mailbox and import personal contacts and other " discovery" of new contacts , rather in the English version , these correspond options are options to add new contacts Gmail, Hotemail, Yahoo! Mail, Outlook, AOL mail , and customized personal mail and so on. In addition , LinkedIn does not offer the option by the global version of Twitter and Facebook, add new contacts through social networking accounts - this should be the difference in the initial startup LinkedIn China , taking into account the costs associated with obtaining the user's way , based on the user's e-mail use frequent users than the United States as well as the specific features of the local social and communication tool , used products, " localization " to improve the way .
It PingWest understood , LinkedIn Chinese version of " collar British network" was Sina Weibo and Tencent Weibo depth cooperation. Users not only can " lead the British network" to add a new career contacts through Sina Weibo and Tencent Weibo , can also be found on Sina Weibo and Tencent Weibo , such as "Are you concerned about × × × has led Britain to join the network "and other tips to guide and lead the new user registration . In addition, the user sends the message content on LinkedIn, the Chinese version can also be a unique Sina Weibo and Tencent Weibo Share button to share a key to go up two microblogging social platform . Data PingWest learned is roughly : Currently involved in testing and have been imported through the microblogging platform LinkedIn Chinese version of the user , the proportion of users from Sina Weibo and Tencent Weibo is roughly 3:1.
Currently LinkedIn Simplified Chinese version of " collar British network" is still in the early testing stages , in addition to most users need to invite registered outside , some of the core features are also not yet available. For example , to maintain close interaction between LinkedIn contacts " group " (Groups) function in Chinese beta version on No appear. In addition, the global version for LinkedIn Influencer program provides invited professionals to set up a number of areas on the LinkedIn column published articles in Simplified Chinese collar British No online also provide this service ( I myself was one of LinkedIn Influencer, but after switching to the Chinese version , this feature can not be used to display ) .
This means that a lot of it comes to social networking LinkedIn addition to the core values - " content creation " feature on LinkedIn Chinese version currently can not provide . Due to regulatory requirements of China's domestic laws and regulations, user -generated content on new media , this service may still to be. But PingWest learned , LinkedIn China has started to recruit local professional editing team responsible for compiling LinkedIn selectively influential people in the world (Influencer) columns , and the development of Chinese local columnist team.
In addition, according PingWest confirmed , like most social networks and content providers to provide overseas Internet companies like , LinkedIn Chinese local companies adopt the form of joint venture operations .
