JavaScript Usage By Linkedin

What is JavaScript?

How Linkedin uses JavaScript?

Advantages Of JavaScript

  • Less server interaction − You can validate user input before sending the page off to the server. This saves server traffic, which means less load on your server.
  • Immediate feedback to the visitors − They don’t have to wait for a page reload to see if they have forgotten to enter something.
  • Increased interactivity − You can create interfaces that react when the user hovers over them with a mouse or activates them via the keyboard.
  • Richer interfaces − You can use JavaScript to include such items as drag-and-drop components and sliders to give a Rich Interface to your site visitors.

Disadvantages Of JavaScript

  1. Client-Side Security - Because the code executes on the users’ computer, in some cases it can be exploited for malicious purposes. This is one reason some people choose to disable JavaScript.
  2. Browser Support- JavaScript is sometimes interpreted differently by different browsers.
