and through an app and enables employers and employees to discover each other, promote CVs and
share business insights. LinkedIn has a massive reach, as of 2021, with over 774 million users in over

relationships and businesses can also use it to create events, groups, publish articles and job
postings, and post other content such as videos or photos.

new products and make them globally visible. It can provide you with a great deal of data that your
