LinkedIn is down outage

LinkedIn is down today with a generic “An error has occured” (sic) message. You know that this isn’t a typical outage when the homepage showing you a typo.

The LinkedIn API Status and Incidents page notes that the company is investigating the issue. The confirmation came at 10:58 p.m. Pacific: “We are currently experiencing an issue across the platform that may cause some API requests to take longer or fail unexpectedly. We are investigating the issue and working on a resolution.”

At 11:06 a.m. Pacific, LinkedIn confirmed the problem on Twitter: “Some members may be experiencing an issue with accessing LinkedIn on mobile and desktop. We’re working on this as we speak and will provide updates as we have them. Thanks for your patience!”

We have contacted Microsoft for more information and will update this post when we hear back.
