LinkedIn has taken its new LinkedIn Lite mobile web and Android app to more than 60 countries across the world. In the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, LinkedIn Lite will be available in Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Nigeria and Tunisia.
LinkedIn Lite is designed for markets where bandwidth is a challenge. LinkedIn Lite is a lighter, faster version of the flagship product and includes all key features such as news feed, profile, networks, messaging and notifications.
The Android app is less than one megabyte in size and can reduce data usage by as much as 80 percent, making it easier for LinkedIn members to connect in areas of low internet connectivity.
