linkedin corp - a (LNKD) Key Developments

LinkedIn Agrees $1.25 Million User Privacy Case Settlement

LinkedIn has agreed to pay $1.25 million to settle a case brought against the firm after a hack of its system in 2012. The incident occurred in June 2012 when 6.5 million encrypted LinkedIn passwords were stolen and posted to a Russian hacker site. Many of the hacked passwords were subsequently decrypted. The company called in the FBI over the incident but disgruntled customers who had paid to use the firm's premium services launched a lawsuit over claims that personal information had not been adequately protected. The company user privacy litigation settlement website has now reported that LinkedIn has settled the case for $1.25 million. However, only those based in the US are entitled to make a claim and the maximum claim is a paltry $50. Those submitting a claim must prove that they signed up to the company having been assured that the information would be kept safe by the company's statements in its User Agreement or Privacy Policy. The deadline for claims is 2 May but claimants can also submit documents saying that they do not accept the settlement fee, so there is no guarantee that the case has reached a conclusion. The settlement will no doubt hurt the company as it follows a $6 million settlement agreed with workers who sued the company for not paying overtime.

LinkedIn Launches Arabic Version

LinkedIn launched its Arabic version at an event held at the company's new regional headquarters in Dubai. The launch of Arabic brings the total number of languages available to 24.

LinkedIn Launches Ad Services for B2B Brands Outside of its Own Walled Garden

LinkedIn is to provide ad services for business-to-business (B2B) brands in and out of its own platform for the first time. The social platform has launched two products that will allow B2B brands to search for sales leads and place ads across various professional websites as well as its own. Previously it had provided targeted advertising options within its own feed and display ads on its platform with its LinkedIn Ads service. LinkedIn's Lead Accelerator claims it can capture missing details of professionals who have visited brand websites by overlaying anonymised LinkedIn data over the brand's site traffic. LinkedIn's Network Display will use its targeting insights to retarget visitors to third party websites and on its own platform.
