Maintaining its legacy of adding a professional touch to ever new offering that comes over this platform, LinkedIn has successfully added a business twist to this new add on! The network will share the entire information about viewers along with their employer name and their job profiles. And, this add on is sure to elevate the status of already acclaimed LinkedIn platform. It is for the very first time that LinkedIn has allowed the users to upload videos to its professional network.
Why Will Videos Add More to Your Professional Network?
We, humans, are the visual creatures. A moving image is sure to halt our attention seeking bugs preventing our thumb to scroll down until we know what the video is all about. Those few seconds from users on a particular video feed is an ultimate chance to boost the visibility of any LinkedIn profile. And that’s all to get a step closer to the extended visibility from a world that is skimming through the online platforms 24*7 and 365 days a year.
