After Twitter, LinkedIn Now Also Blocked In China

February 24th, 2011 02:40 admin Leave a comment Go to comments


It appears that LinkedIn has been blocked in China, after the professional social network became a platform for organizing anti-government protests. The report was first noted by Renmedia.

According to the WSJ article, protesters are moving from various social network sites, such as Twitter and LinkedIn, to organize protests as the Chinese government blocks these sites. We checked out access to LinkedIn on both WebsitePulse and JustPing and both sites indicate that LinkedIn is being blocked from cities in China. It also appears that Twitter is blocked as well.

We’ve contacted LinkedIn for comment on the matter.
