LinkedIn is a widely known and used professional network that has grown to surpass myspace. Sure myspace is old, but large. LinkedIn allows any professional to grow his network regardless of location, age, or ice cream preference. But, LinkedIn does not have the final say. United States export and re-export laws specifically do not allow LinkedIn servers to connect to Syria, Sudan, North Korea, Cuba, and Iran. People cannot use LinkedIn in these countries. In setting up your profile, you may choose any country but these. Well, North Korea is still on the list to choose from but the server still doesn’t connect. LinkedIn: terror free since 2009.
Also, China blocked LinkedIn for a day in order to stop “dissidents” from accessing twitter. It was reported that using LinkedIn may be considered a “gateway” to much harder social networking. (the last part is a joke and not a fact)
