Publishing on LinkedIn


LinkedIn: Creating a post or writing an article from the home page.

Publishing gives members the opportunity to share their thoughts and expertise with other members. This helps grow their audience as well as their network.

Creating a post or writing an article (Exhibit 17.3) are the two options to publishing on LinkedIn. Circulation depends on how many followers the user has, whether these followers share the content, hashtag resonance, and LinkedIn’s algorithm.

Typically, due to the high volume of posts and articles, very few get to see a publication. However, if a post or an article achieves high viewership, it is recommended to a much broader group of members, which greatly enhances its impact.

The published content becomes a part of the author’s LinkedIn profile, and could boost the author’s reputation as an expert or thought leader.
