John Key's on LinkedIn, but happy staying PM

Prime Minister John Key has joined business networking website LinkedIn.

But Andrew Little and Paula Bennett shouldn't crack open the good champagne just yet -- he isn't looking for a new job.

"The Prime Minister has started a LinkedIn account to allow him to communicate with the New Zealand public," a spokesperson for Mr Key told Newshub.

"He will use it alongside his Facebook and Twitter accounts to discuss the Government's work and issues of the day as well as to keep the public informed about his activities."

The page lists his background as Prime Minister of New Zealand, leader of the New Zealand National Party and MP for Helensville. It omits details about his career in the private sector as a currency trader.

He follows one other account -- that of the National Party.

As of today, Mr Key has two connections (the LinkedIn equivalent of Facebook friends). His 'Recent Activity' page is empty, with a message saying he "hasn't had any activity over the last two weeks".
