LinkedIn, the professional social network accessible in Iran, has denied reports that it is entering the local Internet sector. In response to Financial Tribune, the company’s PR department said: “This is categorically false. We have absolutely no plans to open an office in Tehran.” Local social media outlets recently reported that LinkedIn is among companies interested in moving to Iran. Other companies in the media spotlight, which have either denied entering the Iranian market or have remained silent on the issue, include Microsoft, Oracle, Apple, Dell and Russia’s Yandex. However, local firms with commercial distribution license have claimed representing companies like Microsoft that has not commented on their entry. Most companies are waiting for the official lifting of sanctions to announce their Iranian market entry.
