What is LinkedIn?

LinkedIn serves as a social media website designed for professionals to find and present themselves to others in a business network. It is free, and different from other social networks as users specify their positions, ranging from intern to CEO or marketing director; and look at others' profiles to find common-ground business opportunities.
LinkedIn provides developers the ability to integrate their app with LinkedIn with LinkedIn's developer API.
