Do you have access to long-form posts on LinkedIn yet? I noticed this featured added to my LinkedIn profile in early 2014, and the feature is continuing to gain popularity.
Here's what I've found out, per https://help.linkedin.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/47445/ft/eng:
- LinkedIn started rolling this out in May. They stated it's going to a small group first, but that everyone will eventually have the ability for long posts.
- Once upon a time, you had to apply for early access. Now, everyone can use this feature. https://help.linkedin.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/47683/ft/eng
- Long posts are not the same as the LinkedIn Influencer posts. So don't get excited like me when you see the feature.
- If you have access to long-form posts, you are awesome. Well, LinkedIn didn't say this part exactly, but I came to that conclusion. Because I think you're pretty special. I'm sure eventually they will update their explanation of long-form post and publicly announce that all LinkedIn members using this feature are awesome.
Do you have the long form post? Are you awesome? Comment here and let me know.
