Why did LinkedIn go down? What is causing the error?
There is no straightforward answer to the question of why is LinkedIn down. This could be because of multiple reasons. Most commonly, this happens because of an excessive load on the server. Perhaps, an unusual amount of people logged on at the same time, causing the servers to crash.
It could also be possible that Microsoft is upgrading LinkedIn or introducing some new features on the platform. Even this can cause a downtime some time. Stay tuned with us for more updates
