LinkedIn, the Microsoft-owned social platform, has made a name for itself primarily as a platform for people looking to network and pick up knowledge for professional purposes, and for recruitment — a business that now has more than 900 million users. Now, to boost the time people are spending on the platform, the company is breaking into a totally new area: gaming. App researchers have started to find code that points to the work LinkedIn is doing. The LinkedIn spokesperson declined to say how and if Microsoft is involved in the gaming project at LinkedIn. Facebook, the world’s biggest social network, has been a major driver of social gaming over the years.
