LinkedIn Lite is now in the Philippines
LinkedIn, one of the largest professional online networks, has expanded its LinkedIn Lite service in the Philippines.
The LinkedIn Lite aims to bring simplicity and speed to provide greater access to opportunities for more professionals, job seekers, and students in the world. It is available in 60 countries globally, including Philippines, Malaysia, and Indonesia in Southeast Asia after it was first launched in India.
LinkedIn Lite is available on the mobile web and in Android applications. The LinkedIn Lite app includes key features such as newsfeed, profile, networks, messaging, and notifications. It can be accessed by people using any Internet-capable mobile device and can even be accessed on 2g networks. The android application is less than 1MB and can reduce data usage by as much as 80 percent.
Akshay Kothari, Country Manager and Head of Product in LinkedIn India, said, “We recognise that no matter how good, valuable and beneficial a product is, all is lost when people can’t use it. Regardless of their device or location, we hope to level the playing field for all LinkedIn members so they can get closer to their dream jobs, grow their networks and become more successful.”
