LinkedIn will soon become a place for kids as young as 13 to make professional connections. Because we hear all 13-year-olds think about professional connections, like, a lot. The site is planning to lower its previous age limit of 18 and open the site up to 14-year-olds in the United States and 13-year-olds in most of the rest of the world.

Younger folks will be encouraged to browse university pages and read more about prospective industries rather than connect with overzealous recruiters and slimeballs in cheap suits. [Source]
