LinkedIn is a professional networking site. It is used by many to keep in touch with current and former co-workers, and also extensively by recruiters in identifying both candidates and potential hiring managers.

It operates in over 200 countries and territories and has over 500 million members (as of June 2017). In addition to the networking of contacts, there is an active community of member groups and discussion forum functionality.
