If the LinkedIn page is down, there can be various causes for this. In most cases, the problem can be solved with a little waiting time.
LinkedIn down: Causes and solutions
Downtimes on LinkedIn are frustrating. There are a few reasons why the site is down:
- If you are unable to open the page or are presented with an HTTP Error 500, there is either a server or browser issue. If it is the server, you will have to wait until it is accessible again.
- If it is your browser instead, clear the cache just in case. The cache can cause connection problems when unused data is loaded from LinkedIn.
- If it is an update to the LinkedIn web portal, this will be indicated via a message in the browser. Alternatively, you can find out about potential issues and updates via the LinkedIn Developer Status or social media accounts such as Twitter.
- Depending on your browser, you may experience connection issues due to a missing update. Either try a different browser or update your preferred one.
- Last but not least, check your network connection and network devices. If in doubt, restart the connection or your router.
