Posting Links to LinkedInIf you come across an article that is interesting and you think that your LinkedIn network,groups, or an individual should read it as well, posting couldn’t be simpler. The easiestway is to click on the “inShare” button. Should a website not have this button, you willhave to actually go to LinkedIn to post it, more on that later.
Once the inShare button has been clicked, a popup window will appear. From here youcan add comments, post to twitter, change the share settings i.e., make it public orprivate; you can even change the website’s description if you don’t like it. You can alsopost to any one of your groups or to individual people.
To post to a group, all you need to do is to type in the first letter of the group name and adropdown menu will appear giving you a list of groups that start with said letter. This canbe really useful if you forget how many different groups you belong to because youwouldn’t want to post the wrong article to the wrong group. You can give it a subject linewhich will then appear as a discussion topic within the group, and you can follow it upwith a little summary if you so choose.
If you don’t want to post to a group but you would rather post it to an individual orindividuals, you could choose that option too. As you can see above LinkedIn has addeda new feature that makes sharing a link easier. In the “To” box if you start typingsomeone’s name a dropdown menu will appear, similar to finding a group to post to. Forthe sake of everyone’s privacy this has not been fulfilled. Now, with this new feature, youcan share with people who are not even on LinkedIn. Just type in their email addressand press the “Share” button.
Posting a link from inside your LinkedIn profile is pretty straight forward. If you find a linkthat would go over well within your network, just click “Attach a link”, paste the link,manage the settings in the new that window that pops up after clicking and your done.You can even post the same link to twitter as well. Once you are satisfied witheverything, click the “Share” button and you’re done.
