Company updates allow Company Page administrators to directly engage with viewers and followers of their Company Page. Admins can post and share items like company news, promotions, relevant industry articles, SlideShare presentations, and Vimeo and YouTube videos.

  • If you're an assigned Company Page administrator, you can post Company Updates from your Company Page Home tab.
  • LinkedIn members can see your company updates on your company's Home tab.
  • Followers of your Company Page will also get the updates on their homepage.
  • Any LinkedIn member can comment on, like, or share a Company Update. Once a member takes one of these actions, their network will also see the update in their homepage feed.
  • When a Company Page administrator comments on or likes an update, it will appear as the company commenting on or liking the post.
  • Company updates support a variety of formats including text and a link to a website, image, SlideShare presentation, or YouTube and Vimeo video. URLs will be automatically shortened by LinkedIn's URL shortener.
  • Targeted company updates are also available to give companies the ability to tailor content to specific audiences. Updates are targeted based on followers profile data which include the following parameters: company size, industry, function, seniority, geography, and language preference. You can also target non-employee followers with these same targeting parameters.
