LinkedIn Workplace Will Stop Working in China From August 9!

On May 9th, LinkedIn made an announcement on Weibo regarding its job search platform, LinkedIn Workplace, which had been localized to China. The platform will officially cease operation on August 9, 2023, and the size of the Chinese team will also be reduced.

According to LinkedIn, the decision was prompted by the challenges faced due to the increasingly competitive market and the macroeconomic environment. It was also revealed that LinkedIn entered China in 2014, using a dual-brand strategy and launching a dual-brand application called Chitu.

The company carried out several localization attempts. As of May 2020, LinkedIn had over 690 million users worldwide, with more than 50 million users in China alone. In 2021, LinkedIn released a new application in Mainland China, which was also called LinkedIn Workplace.

But given the recent decisions, it seems that service too hit troubled waters.
