Your LinkedIn Feed is Coming to Life with Videos from LinkedIn Influencers
August 2, 2016
LinkedIn has become the destination to hear from many of the most influential global voices on news and topics affecting the professional world today. From issues like Brexit to the business impact of Pokémon Go, the opinions shared here have generated millions of conversations across LinkedIn -- with many of those taking place in the LinkedIn Feed. Over the past few months, we’ve worked hard to make your feed a valuable resource for dynamic conversations, professional news and stories.
Today your LinkedIn Feed will come to life in a whole new way with the introduction of 30-second videos from LinkedIn Influencers. For the first time, we’ve invited more than 500 Influencers on LinkedIn to share their thoughts on trending professional topics and news, ranging from diversity and workplace culture, to education and innovation -- all through the richness of video.
Curious to get tips from Naomi Simson and Guy Kawasaki on how to ace your next pitch? Or perhaps you’d like to hear from KIPP co-founder Mike Feinberg and edX CEO Anant Agarwal about how they think colleges should measure success. With videos like these, you’ll get an intimate look at where they work and hear their honest thoughts on topics central to the professional world, such as these videos from Reid Hoffman, Leila Janah, and Tomasz Tunguz on how artificial intelligence will change the workplace.
When an Influencer you follow posts a video, that video will appear directly in your feed. From there, you can dive in to see what other Influencers have to say about that topic, weigh in with a comment, and respond to comments from other members.
While the ability to create video content is currently only available to Influencers, anyone can follow an Influencer at any time to engage with their content, either from their profile, the feed, or their video. We encourage you to share your thoughts by commenting on videos and inviting others to join the conversation by sharing the videos with your network. By doing so, you have the opportunity to engage more deeply with the people and topics that matter in your industry.
