LinkedIn is currently inactive worldwide, affecting users on both mobile and desktop devices. The Microsoft-owned social network began experiencing problems around 2 p.m. ET, and LinkedIn has confirmed that it is working to get the site back online.
“Some members may have trouble accessing LinkedIn on desktop and mobile devices,” reads a LinkedIn post on Twitter. “We are working on this as we speak and will provide updates as we get them.”

It’s rare for LinkedIn to experience outages, and it’s unclear why the service is having trouble today. LinkedIn last experienced widespread problems in January of last year, when users were unable to post to the service or make new connections. Today’s outage is impacting the entire website so it is not loading for most users.
We reached out to LinkedIn for more details and will update accordingly. If you’re waiting for that all-important email to connect to the professional network, just know that the issues are being resolved.
