LinkedIn announced today it has updated its terms of service, with the changes taking effect this September 12th. The changes come in part due to LinkedIn opening itself up more to pre-university students with today’s launch of LinkedIn University Pages. Minors who are members will have somewhat different default settings to maintain privacy, and customer support tickets sent in by minors will be routed differently.
If you’re in the US, you can sign up for LinkedIn when you’re 14, but in each country it’s different. In many countries, minors can join at 13; in China it is 18.
