In October, the number of visits to social networks in Russia amounted to 8.09 million In November this figure dropped to 5.16 million But by the end of last year, the Russian users can continue to download the app on their phones, while Roskomnadzor is not sent to Apple and Google letters with the requirement to remove it Lthe App Store and Google Play.
Previously it was reported that LinkedIn is difficult to localize their service in a particular country because it was originally a centralized architecture. At LinkedIn there is no separate database users from each country all integrated into a single system, so the localization is in fact is the creation of a separate hardware-software complex for a single country, effectively duplicating the functions of the core network. Audience of the service in Russia is relatively small – about 2.4 million users, compared with 433 million worldwide. However, as you can see, LinkedIn is ready to invest in the migration data for the Russian market.
