THOUSANDS of frustrated users have reported issues with LinkedIn.
The reports flooded in Down detector earlier today.
According to the monitoring site, 76% of the reported issues were related to the LinkedIn website.
It’s unclear what exactly caused the problems, but reports are now fading.
The LinkedIn website indicated that it was a server issue.
People reported seeing a notice that said “The server cannot be found, the server has no DNS record”.
DNS stands for Domain Name System and this is software that takes human names and can convert them into an IP address.
This is very important when searching for user profiles on LinkedIn.
Over 5,000 issues have been reported in the US.
Thousands of problems have also been reported in the UK.
Many LinkedIn users turned to Twitter to vent their frustration.
A person wrote: “Not so happy Monday. #LinkedIn appears to be down (desktop), but the app is still working.”
Another tweeted directly to LinkedIn and said: “What’s wrong with the website?
“Looks like she’s dropped out. Lots of reports from other users here on Twitter too.”
