Reid Hoffman Started out LinkedIn in his living room in 2002 and subsequently launched the company on May 5, 2003. Approximately 11 years later LinkedIn journey has been phenomenal with over 238 Million plus professional connection on this platform.
LinkedIn started as a professional network platform and subsequently it added business page. This year it added University page and dropped down the minimum age to 13 years and 14 years depending on the region. What does it foretell for LinkedIn users?
