We're always looking for new ways for members to contribute and share professional insights on LinkedIn. We're expanding LinkedIn's publishing platform, by allowing members, in addition to Influencers, to publish long-form posts about their expertise and professional interests.


  • Only English-language posts can be published at this time.
  • Publishing a long-form post on LinkedIn does not mean that you are a LinkedIn Influencer.

When you publish a long-form post on LinkedIn:

  • Your original content becomes part of your professional profile. It is displayed on the Posts section of your LinkedIn profile.
  • It is shared with your connections and followers.
  • Members not in your network can now follow you from your long-form post to receive updates when you publish next.
  • Your long-form post is searchable both on and off of LinkedIn.

Note: We're in the process of rolling out this feature to all members in the coming months. You'll be notified on your homepage when you've been granted access to the publishing tool.
