Linked In is now available in Chinese Language

by on Feb.25, 2014, under Asia Business

Many popular western networking sites are blocked in China and as a result the endemic Chinese versions of Twitter, Facebook and YouTube have close to a billion followers, with hundreds of millions normally online at any one time.

You can read more about all of that in my article Are you being seen in China? on CSIC.

One cool aspect of Linked In, is accessibility in China. Most Chinese users that I have spoken to have not had an issue with it being English only, largely as it is business focused and most Chinese doing business with the west have a very good grasp of English, especially written English.

None the less, I am sure that many Chinese will welcome the move, that Linked In now has a Chinese version.

Something that will certainly capitalise on the swaths of Chinese Netizens already active in the Chinese on line world is the functionality of allowing to add connections directly from other social network accounts like Sina Weibo and Tencent Weibo.

At QPI Ltd we certainly welcome the move. Apart from the obvious telephone and face to face meetings, we speak to most of our Factory and Quality Control contacts via some of the local Chinese networks including Weibo and QQ.

Having a Chinese version of Linked In will certainly make it easier for many Chinese to connect and Network on a more business focused platform.
