LinkedIn plans to boost its connections and presence in the Middle East by opening an office in Dubai.

The firm is hiring staff for its new base, which is said to be in Dubai Internet City, according to The National. An executive at DIC said that there have been talks to open an office in the free zone but as of now, nothing had been confirmed. "They have shown an interest. There has been a discussion."

Sources that are close to LinkedIn have said the business-networking giant will open their office either in September or October this year.

LinkedIn is the second big-name social network to come to Dubai this year. Facebook opened an office in Dubai Internet City, in May, earlier this year.
