LinkedIn To Go Public…Puts Up 404 Not Found Page as a Welcome
The big chatter this morning around business networking service LinkedIn is that they will go public in 2011. Reuters has a full recap of their conversation with three sources that suggest the IPO will arrive this year.
Unfortunately LinkedIn has been displaying the following error message for the last 30+ minutes, “Page Not Found — The page you requested is no longer available, or cannot be found.” This is the popular 404 error code (and it’s also the area code for Atlanta!). Some of the pages do appear to work although more and more I am finding the 404 error on page refreshes.
Update: something makes me think a small percentage of their servers are having some issues. I find on some loads everything works great, others I get errors including a Fatal Error when accessing their help site.
Update: 1:45pm Eastern – we are back in action – go friend people and share all the same stuff you share on Twitter!
My profile still appears to load correctly but clicking to LinkedIn provides the 404 error message.
LinkedIn is typically a rock-solid service so I am not sure if the downtime is related to traffic from the IPO discussions or if there are other technical issues going on as well. I have emailed LinkedIn and will update this post if I hear back regarding why the service is providing a 404 not found error message.
Please report in if LinkedIn is broken where you are location – include your location if you provide a comment.
