Abstract: The objective of this paper is to establish if ILO's 181 Private Employment Agencies Con- vention apply to labour intermediaries that exclusively operate in the online sphere, such business and employment-oriented social networks. Since the Convention was adopted in 1997, the extreme impact of ICT in employment intermediation has led us to wonder whether the Convention should be updated to adapt it to this new reality. We will focus on the business and employment-oriented social network LinkedIn, where users from different fields (unemployed users, craftsmen, workers, companies, etc.) interact among each other, companies post job vacancies, locate and select potential candidates while users can actively search for new job opportunities. We selected the above-mentioned social network because it is the most important with regard to number of users (10 million users only in Spain) and because we know in-depth how the platform operates since we created our profile back in 2012. First, we will outline some of the platform's functionalities and its fundamentals. Second, we will draw a comparison between the ILO's 181 Convention and the Spanish labour intermediation laws (2015 Employment's Law and RD 1796/2010).
