BEIJING (Reuters) - LinkedIn Corp will continue to seek out opportunities in the market to capitalize on its massive user base even though it sees the market as complicated, a company executive said on Thursday.

LinkedIn, a professional social-networking-site, was briefly blocked by China in February this year.

The firm has a small presence in the country and is one of the few foreign social-networking-sites to still have access to Chinese Internet users. Twitter and Facebook are blocked in China.
