LinkedIn and Microsoft: Next Play

December 8, 2016

Today, I'm pleased to share that we’ve officially closed Microsoft's acquisition of LinkedIn. This is a major milestone for the company, one that we believe will accelerate how we connect the world’s professionals to make them more productive and successful.

For our members, the LinkedIn that you use to advance your career, find jobs, build your network and stay informed is only going to get better. We’re going to focus on how we leverage Microsoft's impressive scale and innovation to create more value for all of you.

As we build for the future, our commitment to our mission, vision, values and your experience remain unchanged. Our members still come first and creating economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce has never been more important.
