Australian members woke up to the new Stories feature on Thursday 18th June. This new feature works very much like Stories on other social media platforms such as Instagram and allows individuals to share short posts that only show up in stories on the mobile app for 24 hours.
Isn’t this feature too ‘Instagram-esque’? LinkedIn repsond to their members….
“LinkedIn found that members and executives wanted a more relaxed way to share more frequently, and Stories offers that in spades.”
This means you have a place to share the in-the-moment content that doesn’t need to be part of your profile activity history. LinkedIn Stories offers an authentic way to share everyday professional moments:
• Things you do at work (e.g. behind the scenes, productivity tips)
• Things you do around work (e.g. morning routines, work-life balance)
• Things relevant to your work that are happening around you (e.g. industry headlines, trends)
Give your network (Connections and Followers) a glimpse into your day, behind the professional profile. It is a place to celebrate quick wins and achievements, what you are doing, reading, learning right now, what is going on in your environment, who you are with, working from home hacks, what you are eating, drinking or baking while working from home, events you are attending or hosting and so much more.
“LinkedIn Stories is a new way to share professional moments with online communities, making it easier to stay connected, inform your audiences and share important stories from wherever you may be.”
According to LinkedIn “more than 2 million posts, videos and articles go through LinkedIn’s feed every day, generating tens of millions of shares and likes.” Stories are a place to share the lighter, fun posts, with the feed content being content that you want as part of your public footprint.
Share images or video up to 20 seconds on mobile app
Add stickers and text overlays
朗 Mention people by tagging them
Post up to 100 a day maximum!
Maybe don't share 100, but you could create a series of images or videos that connect.
Stories last just 24 hours but can be downloaded. They won't show up in your activity or in the home feed. If you accidentally overshare you can delete your stories!
When you are about to post on LinkedIn, ask yourself, is this feed-worthy or is it a story moment?
