LinkedIn Announces Student Service

The business-oriented social network today announced a new effort to recruit younger students with its new program, LinkedIn for Students. Starting on September 12, the company will let anyone older than 13 sign up. It’s also allowing universities and colleges to establish “University Pages” that feature career oriented, college-based information that includes specializations, status updates, notable alumni, and other data. Of yet, 200 universities have signed up, and hope to influence future students, and help them build a digital profile from the ground up.
