LinkedIn does not currently operate worldwide and affects users of both mobile devices and desktops. The social network, owned by Microsoft, first started experiencing problems around 14:00 ET, and LinkedIn confirmed that it is working to bring the site back online.
“Some members may have trouble accessing LinkedIn on mobile devices and desktops,” a LinkedIn Twitter post said. “We’re working on that as we speak, and we’ll provide updates as we have them.”

It is rare for LinkedIn to break and it is not clear why the service has problems today. LinkedIn last had widespread problems last January, when users were unable to post to the service or make new connections. Today’s outage affects the entire website, so it doesn’t charge at all for most users.
We contacted LinkedIn for more details and will update you accordingly. If you are waiting for this important email to connect to the professional network, just know that the problems are being worked on.
