Professional social media website LinkedIn has launched pages specifically dedicated to Universities. This is in a bid to tap into the growing number of young people looking to be connected online and thirsty for information.
The pages will allow students explore information about universities, courses and alumni. LinkedIn says over 200 universities have adopted the new pages.
“Through my relationships at LinkedIn, I knew that hidden in millions of member profiles were powerful insights about the career outcomes of educations from universities around the world. If harnessed, there insights would provide incredible value for students – helping them explore possible futures and build a support network to help them succeed on campus and beyond,” said Christina Allen, on the LinkedIn blog.
LinkedIn also said that will be launching pages for High Schools on September 12th.
