2023 RECENT LINKEDIN UPDATES
1. TALKS ABOUT HASHTAG
A hashtag filter has been added to the search function when you do a People Search / All filters. This is WONDERFUL search engine function to connect with people that are interested in topics you teach about or have expertise in! Think of this tool as an index to find people that are aligned around topics that matter to you.
2. STATUS PAGE
Want to know if what you’re experiencing on LinkedIn is an individual problem or a system one? Good news! At this link you can access an incident history so you can see what’s been reported the same day https://www.linkedin-status.com/. It covers a significant amount of LinkedIn’s tools and products. Love this one!
3. WAITING ROOM FOR LIVE EVENTS
When waiting for a LinkedIn Live about to start, in the past you couldn’t tell if you were in the right place. Good news – now there’s a waiting room so you can know you’re in the right spot. Event page.
4. ARTICLES AND NEWSLETTER SCHEDULER
This works the same as for scheduling posts, which has been in place for several months. However, you do have to get to the Share promo post page before you’ll see it (or not if it’s not yet rolled out to you). If you are doing a newsletter on LinkedIn, this is exceptionally useful.
5. STAR MESSAGES IN INBOX
You can now Star (and unstar) messages from the (…) menu at the top right of the message. FINALLY! An easier way to track key messages that are SO easy to lose track of. To do more detailed follow up, I use a tool that Michelle Denio created, which is outstanding at monitoring several elements of conversation. DM me if interested and I’ll connect you to that & her.
6. COMPANY PAGE NOW HAS A BELL FEATURE AS WELL
Makes it simple and clean to stay in touch with your tribe. And now that you can invite 250 each month to follow your company page, it keeps growing. Plus your company page has the ability to interact directly. I expect a lot more changes to continue to roll out on the ever evolving company page capabilities.
