Other LinkedIn users have access to this information and can write their own articles and share this content with others. The focus of the network is on the professional exchange on specialist topics with people who have the same professional interests.

When using or visiting the network, LinkedIn automatically collects data from users or visitors during use or visit, such as user name, job title and IP address. This is done with the help of various tracking technologies. LinkedIn provides benefits based on the data collected in this way, among other things, information, offers and recommendations.
