LinkedIn, the social network for professionals, just launched a beta version of its site in Simplified Chinese.
We first saw the news on TechCrunch.
China represents a massive opportunity for LinkedIn, with some 140 million professionals.
LinkedIn China marks the 22nd local language site for LinkedIn.
The idea behind the Chinese site, LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner wrote in a blog post, is to build a talent marketplace that woulf attract companies looking to expand in China, as well as those companies in China looking for a bigger international presence.
But as the site grows, it might need a license from the Chinese government, which may try to limit what LinkedIn publishes there.
