LinkedIn appoints China chief, SCMP says

Professional networking website LinkedIn has named Derek Shen, former chief executive of Chinese group-buying website Nuomi, to fill its new position of China president, likely signalling a formal launch in the country, the South China Morning Post reported Thursday. The company has more than 4 million users in the country despite only having a Chinese mobile app — and not a Chinese website, the report said. There are many LinkedIn clones on the mainland but no imitators have gained control of the market.
