Enrich your updates on LinkedIn with Rich Media [SLIDESHOW]
May 30, 2013
You may have seen that we recently enabled the ability for you to add rich media to your profile to help you visually showcase your professional story and accomplishments. Starting today, you can now also directly upload images, documents, and presentations to the updates you share from the LinkedIn Homepage. This new feature is rolling out to all members around the world over the next few weeks.
Whether it’s a thought provoking presentation about the future of big data or it’s a picture of an inspirational quote, or perhaps it’s an infographic showing the top trends impacting your industry, the possibilities are endless for what you can share on LinkedIn to add a richer and more visual component to your professional discussions.
How do you get started? Simply click on the paperclip on the right side of your share box on the LinkedIn Homepage and start uploading images or files that visually enhance what youhave to say. If you want to attach a video or other rich media content that is hosted already on another site, simply paste in the URL into the share box to add it to your update.
We also introduced the ability to directly upload images and files to 2.9 million Company Page admins, so you can expect to see richer and more engaging visual content flowing across your LinkedIn experience. In the meantime, we look forward to seeing what you have to share and say about your professional universe through pictures, slides and more!
