INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta- LinkedIn, the largest professional network on the internet, today announced the availability of LinkedIn Lite in more than 60 countries worldwide, including Southeast Asian countries such as Indonesia, the Philippines and Malaysia, having previously launched for the Indian market.

This light version of LinkedIn focuses on providing a fast and simple user experience to be able to embrace more of the world's professionals and students, helping them connect to career development opportunities that can be achieved through LinkedIn.

Currently, LinkedIn has over 118 million members in Asia Pacific, and more than 22 million members are from Southeast Asia. Southeast Asia is one of the fastest growing regions in the world, with more than 8 million members in Indonesia, 4 million in the Philippines and 3 million in Malaysia.

LinkedIn Lite is currently accessible via the web as well as android apps. Although this is a light version, it still offers key features such as news feeds, profiles, networks, messages, and notifications. LinkedIn Lite is accessible through a web browser from almost any mobile device with internet capabilities available on the market today (even accessible via 2G networks). LinkedIn Lite Android app version is also very light, because it is only less than 1 Megabyte and can cut data consumption up to 80 percent.

"Access to economic opportunities is a great challenge for students and professionals, especially those who are hindered by the availability of technology and good Internet connectivity," said Akshay Kothari, Country Manager and Head of Product, LinkedIn India in Jakarta, Friday (4/8 / 2017).

Since it was first launched in India, LinkedIn Lite has had a tremendous impact on its members. In addition to faster access, the number of job applications through LinkedIn also increased dramatically. What's more, since more than half of LinkedIn's new members sign up from mobile phones, LinkedIn Lite opens greater opportunities for professionals in small towns to sign up and connect within professional networks.

 
"We also recognize that for whatever benefits a product offers, it will be useless if it is not accessible and usable. On this basis we developed LinkedIn Lite. We strive to provide access to wider economic and career opportunities for our members, from getting the latest information on industry to new jobs," he explained.
