Hello Friends

I hope you are enjoying this beautiful summer weather. Hopefully, you can take some time off and enjoy the season.

For me? I like the water, seeing family, boating, and taking walks to enjoy nature.

LinkedIn DOES seem to slow down just a bit in the summer, but we are still seeing feature updates. So here goes...


July Feature Updates

πŸ‘‰ Carousel posts improvements are happening, but I don't have this yet.

πŸ‘‰ The new "Repost" may become the default vs. the share button. You should still have two options, but repost more prominent.

πŸ‘‰ People are getting the new settings and privacy

πŸ‘‰ Look forward to adding hashtags and mentions in newsletters and articles

πŸ‘‰ Analyze your feed. Are you starting to see more hashtag content? This is happening

πŸ‘‰ LinkedIn announced an API and scheduling tools upgrade, giving better access to certain 3rd parties.

πŸ‘‰ LinkedIn seems to think you want to post into a group after a normal post. Resist this temptation!

πŸ‘‰ Once you get mentioned, LinkedIn may prompt you to reshare

πŸ‘‰ Sharing outside LinkedIn over to Twitter and Facebook just got easier. Check it out.

πŸ‘‰ For Companies: LinkedIn wants to entice you to boost more, so they will display the reach statistics you can expect.

πŸ‘‰ I heard that invitations might be moved to notifications? Hopefully not. I like to manage them in the My network section.

πŸ‘‰ For Creators - Audio events are now available for all. AND LinkedIn will now notify followers and connections of the speakers and host of your event. This is BIG. AND Looking forward to a new "Follow" button for creators to add anywhere. It should be evident in our panel, but I don't have it yet

πŸ‘‰ Can you comment on events yet? This seems to be very useful

πŸ‘‰ Have you been commenting as a page lately? It is now easier than ever. Just select the dropdown for the options.

July Gratitude and Advice Corner: "Intern Career Day" and "Top Gun Maverick" ✈️

πŸ‘‰ Thank you to my friend Gail Alofsin and our new bank client in Rhode Island! We had a blast with the team and their interns by delivering our "Intern Career Day" program in early July.

πŸ‘‰ Following up on the abovementioned point, it is not too late to offer your company interns a special career day or LinkedIn-themed mini-event!

πŸ‘‰ Of course, I had to post about Tom Cruise's Movie Top Gun: Maverick this month and tie it into LinkedIn. Here it is, and I hope you can catch this super movie!
