>> LinkedIn is going offline in Russia. The social networking site will be blocked by Russian authorities after the country's Internet watchdog found the site guilty of violating data laws. Russia requires websites storing the data of its citizens to do so on Russian servers. But this is the first major social network to fall foul of the law.
Introduced in 2014, it's never actually been enforced. Critics see the move as further proof of Russia tightening its grip on Internet freedoms. And the latest changes could come quick. Local media reports suggest LinkedIn could be locked out in one day. 6 million registered Russian users stand to be affected.
