・Microsoft recently pulled LinkedIn from China and introduced a new job search app without a social feed

China has ordered Microsoft’s Bing search engine to pause its auto-suggest feature for 30 days, the US company said on Friday, dealing a new complication for the firm after it replaced its LinkedIn platform in the country with a special app that has no social feed.
Microsoft, the world’s second largest company by market cap, announced in a post on Chinese social media platform WeChat that “Bing China has been required by the relevant government agency to suspend the search auto-suggestion feature in mainland China for 30 days”, without elaborating on the reason.
