You may see limited performance issues during this time. We apologize for any inconveniences generated by any service interruptions. We will be performing site wide maintenance on October 10th between 8 pm and 11 pm PST. This maintenance applies to all LinkedIn sites and applications, including our APIs. You may experience limited availability of certain APIs during this time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please don't hesitate to reach out on our forums if you continue to experience API availability issues after the maintenance window In light of the recent disclosure of the "Poodle" SSL vulnerability, LinkedIn is joining the large number of services that have actively removed support for SSLv3, effective immediately. If you are experiencing errors related to HTTPS-based communication with our APIs, please ensure you are using a client/library that supports TLS 1.0+ instead of SSLv3 to avoid disruption. Attention, developers! We have transitioned to StackOverflow for forum-based support. Learn more about this change.

A few weeks ago we were excited to announce the opening of our Company Pages & Analytics APIs to our developer community. With these APIs, we've made it easy for developers to publish content to company pages as well as provide key analytics to their end users. One of our developers that saw immediate impact after integrating with these newly available APIs was Buffer. Over 1,000,000 people use Buffer to easily publish content on multiple platforms, including LinkedIn.
