LinkedIn continues to work on improving the user experience when using the platform.
They have recently made improvements and added some new features, including Multi-photo posts, Native Video, Logged-out Views of all posts, Share a Draft, and Disable Comments.
Here are all the details:
— Upload multiple photos in a single post
You now have the ability to select multiple photos in a single post. You can share more of your experiences at a conference or upload more of the slides you presented. Currently available for upload on iOS (Android and desktop coming soon).
— Post native video directly to LinkedIn
I previously wrote about this update but include it here as a reminder. You’ll soon be able to record and post videos directly from the LinkedIn app, giving you another way to share your professional insights and perspectives. As I said previously, this has started rolling out to a small group of members, but you can expect to have access soon.
— Get more distribution! Share your content off of LinkedIn
Guests and logged out users of LinkedIn can now see your posts, videos, and articles on LinkedIn. Just grab the post’s URL via the control menu and share it with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and around the web!
— Share a draft of your article before you publish
Want to get feedback on an article you are about to release before you publish it? You can now share your draft articles. Click on “Share Draft” in the article edit menu to get the link. Your drafts are only available to people who have these direct links that you choose to create. This allows you to get input from others easily.
— Take control over your comments
As part of LinkedIn’s ongoing efforts to provide a professional environment that encourages sharing of perspectives and thoughts on professional issues, they have rolled out the ability to manage the comments on your posts and articles directly. This added feature gives you the option to enable or disable comments. Remember, responding to comments left on a post or article is a great way to increase engagement.
LinkedIn continues to improve the user experience and is an important platform that will contribute to improving your Internet Presence.
