Oct 14 - Microsoft shutting down LinkedIn in China

Microsoft is shutting down its social network, LinkedIn, in China, saying having to comply with the Chinese state has become increasingly challenging.

It comes after the career-networking site faced questions for blocking the profiles of some journalists.

LinkedIn will launch a jobs-only version of the site, called InJobs, later this year.

But this will not include a social feed or the ability to share or post articles.

LinkedIn senior vice-president Mohak Shroff blogged: "We're facing a significantly more challenging operating environment and greater compliance requirements in China."

And the firm said in a statement: "While we are going to sunset the localised version of LinkedIn in China later this year, we will continue to have a strong presence in China to drive our new strategy and are excited to launch the new InJobs app later this year."

'Gross appeasement'
LinkedIn had been the only major Western social-media platform operating in China.

When it launched there, in 2014, it had agreed to adhere to the requirements of the Chinese government in order to operate there, but also promised to be transparent about how it conducted business in the country and said it disagreed with government censorship.

Recently, LinkedIn blacklisted several journalist accounts, including those of Melissa Chan and Greg Bruno, from its China-based website.

Mr Bruno, who has written a book documenting China's treatment of Tibetan refugees, told Verdict he was not surprised the Chinese Communist Party did not like it but was "dismayed that an American tech company is caving into the demands of a foreign government".

US senator Rick Scott called the move a "gross appeasement and an act of submission to Communist China", in a letter to LinkedIn chief executive Ryan Roslansky and Microsoft boss Satya Nadella.

China doesn't give a fu*k about the West. Lets be clear about this.

They are on some other time all together. They could give a fu*k about Lindenin. They are literally on cusp of bio-tracking their entire population down to a man. They banned f*gs (white America's social lapdog) on tv, reduced video game (the single biggest entertainment industry on the planet eclipsing film and television by a substantial amount) time they're building their own film and entertainment industry that is already rivaling America's and they don't allow recreational drugs at all (another HUGE American market that they pretend to police but love to profit from at the same time).

They could give a fu*k about linkedin or Microsoft for that matter.

They are China-centric. Not Euro-centric. They could give a fu*k about Western sentiments. Xi is the Emperor and anything America has over there he can get his boys to build a China-centric version of it.

It's a Chinese world, Americans (white people) just living in it as far as they're concerned.

They not about to let any free thought run about in China. Only state run propaganda from the ruling party. Perfect for OPs threads.
