Networks and Relationships
LinkedIN operates a forum for professionals to manage their professional networks and work experience.
This open source platform allows individuals to manage their professional networks and work history.
As of November 2011, over 135 million professionals were members of this program.
If a member chooses to make his/her professional profile public then researchers can access self-reported professional information on LinkedIN members. If the member restricts the data, then the data is only available on a limited basis.
This is an open source web platform that is constantly updated.
