LinkedIn can be regarded as one of the biggest social networking websites that are used by thousands of professionals on daily basis but it is a fact that LinkedIn is more successful in western countries in comparisons to Asian countries. India can be recognized to have partial of its overall users and some of them can be found in Australia and south Asia as well but their account in east Asia is still a bit less. Some of the factors responsible for this fact were the cultural aspects that downcast this uncluttered networking system and inhibit the specialized self-glorification.
Some of the reasons which may be held responsible include the following, have a look!
1. Lack Of Expression
The scope of the coverage that LinkedIn provides to its users along with the countenance is some of the things that make this website valuable among all. It gives the customers the required network effects which are the core component of the great technology and internet but the people of Asia have failed to make it appreciated as much as people of western countries have. Though LinkedIn is gaining popularity every day but without the appreciation of Asian countries it is still unable to reach its stated goals.
2. Lack Of Exposure
In many Asian countries there is lack of exposure, prospect ad depiction in regard to LinkedIn thus this way faculty of Asia along with its culture, background and pedigrees are not bonded together at all. Through LinkedIn the chances of screening the entire world as to how much skills and talent is in Asian people can be showcased which will be in concern with the articles, movies and lifestyle etc.
3. Facebook As A Major Competitor
Though LinkedIn has 120 million members but Facebook today has around 750 million users and so it is rivaling the outdated job boards all over the world. The social marketing of Facebook is much stronger than LinkedIn because it does not involve a huge sum of personal references in order to get the job and provides normal interactions by recommending the required pages to the user.
4. Having No Linkedin Recommendations
It is just like not having your personal outline because once the signup is to be through, you are obligatory to give out at least three endorsements so the profile can get utterly complete thus in Asian countries not many of such recommendations are reachable which makes it hard for users to access to the website and get the prerequisite outcomes.
