Why focus on LinkedIn?
“LinkedIn is the world's largest business-focused social network, and it is seeing rapid growth in China, from 4M users in 2014 to nearly 40M today. As one of the few well-established Western platforms that has rapid growing usage in China, it's a critical platform to get right for international business people here and abroad.” – Ryan Purkey
