Introducing LinkedIn Video: Show Your Experience and Perspective

August 22, 2017

Every day, millions of LinkedIn members have conversations about their work, career and interests. We’ve seen countless examples of how these conversations help members get ahead in their careers and find their way in to new opportunities. This is why we continue to invest in new ways for you to discover great content and contribute to the conversations that matter most to you.

With this in mind, today we’re adding another way for you to share your experience and perspective with the introduction of LinkedIn video.

We began testing video last month and we’ve already seen so many personal and inspiring videos, such as Edwin Rhemrev detailing his process for sketching a set design; Madison Allen taking people behind the scenes by showing what her company’s forklift can do; and Chris Chien sharing an inside scoop at Comic Con.

These are just a few of the many ways you can use video to share your ideas, learn from others and jump start new conversations.

Ready to start recording? Here’s how:

In the LinkedIn mobile app, look for the share box at the top of the feed (iOS) or the post button (Android) and tap on the video icon. You can record a video in the app, or upload something you recorded earlier.

See who’s viewing your videos

After you post a video, you can see audience insights such as the top companies, titles and locations of your viewers, as well as how many views, likes, and comments your videos are receiving. With these insights you can begin to understand if you’re reaching the people and companies that matter to you. You can find audience insights in the dashboard section of your LinkedIn profile on both mobile and desktop.

If you don’t yet have the ability to post videos, you will soon as we continue rolling this out to all members globally over the coming weeks. Looking for even more tips?
