LinkedIn is a business orientated social networking website where members upload an online CV and are able to create business links. It has 300 million members in more than 200 countries.
In March 2015 LinkedIn announced they had appointed Westbourne Communications as their first UK public affairs agency. A Westbourne spokesman said the agency would 'support the team at LinkedIn to help policy makers gain new insights into the job market by showcasing LinkedIn’s "Economic Graph"'.
