LinkedIn lowering minimum membership age

Friday 23 August 2013 | 21:03 CET | News
Social network LinkedIn announced that it is lowering the minimum age of its membership to fourteen years old in the US in September in an attempt to become a go-to source for college-bound teenagers, according to The Wall Street Journal. LinkedIn is also offering a new feature, University Pages, to encourage colleges to build out their profiles in LinkedIn. With University Pages, users can follow updates from colleges and discover and connect with other students or alumni. Members will also be able to trace the careers of alumni. If a new user indicates that he or she attends high school, that person's account will automatically have higher security settings, the company says.
