Scraping LinkedIn Data Extraction

LinkedIn is a very popular business network. You find your coworkers and friends through this network in a similar manner to the way friends are found on Facebook. The difference between the two is obvious, but at the same time, the two networks, LinkedIn and Facebook, are both very similar in terms of their essential goal in connecting people. With these kinds of networks, also comes a flood-like amount of data swishing around in these networks. To access this kind of data and effectively use this mass of data by hand would be impossible. This is where the data extraction software kicks in. With this web scraping software from Mozenda, all the information from LinkedIn (an invaluable network) can be downloaded very simply.
