 In 2013, the
professional network had extended this ability to users in the US. LinkedIn
says it has already reached 1 million posts till now. LinkedIn members have
been publishing over 40,000 posts per week, on average, the company says.

Posting on the official
LinkedIn blog
, a LinkedIn spokesperson said that this ability would be made
available to all 330 million users in the coming months, which will include the
option to post in a language of their choice as long as it is supported by
LinkedIn. 

In August 2014, it had bought a company called Bizo
for $175 million
. Bizo developed a business-audience marketing tool that
allows marketers to target professionals through display and sponsored content.
Fueled by proprietary data management and targeting technology, their platform
enables precise and measurable multi-channel marketing programs.

LinkedIn operates on the three principles of identity,
network and knowledge, India Country Head Nishant Rao told Exchange4Media.
“The idea is for the company to project itself as a premier publishing platform
for professionals on the internet. We believe in quality and relevance. Our
primary focus is on professionals or what we call the “Prosumer” or
professional consumer. It is B2B but it is also premium B2C. We are not mass
market and we do not aspire to be,” he had explained.
