  • It allows a direct line of communication to professionals that follow your business online.
  • Gives a company a dedicated space for their company to display whom they are, and what they do.
  • Contributes to keeping your company relevant by posting content.
  • I was never a fan of the way people connect on the platform. For example, if I want to connect with someone I have to at least know them or their email address. There are situations whereas I want to connect with people whom I do not know.
  • The platform is slowly turning into Facebook. More and more I see people posting things that do not belong. Linkedin is supposed to be a professional platform, I wish they would be more clear about that. People can and do post whatever they want, however some kind of reminder to people who use the platform would be nice.
The platform is a great tool for someone trying to find a job. I have personally used the platform to help me get my current position and will use it again once I am back in the job market. There are some people out there who claim the platform is useless. In my opinion, if you see the LinkedIn platform as useless then you don't really understand how helpful it can be in the digital age of 2017.

LinkedIn Publisher helps me connect with my target audience: ambitious, mid-career professionals.

It's a way for me to share valuable content that helps people manage their careers and grow my list/followership of potential clients.
  • I like how it lets you publish long form content.
  • I love how it lets me copy and paste words and links from my WordPress website, and it all comes over without me having to reinsert the links.
  • As LinkedIn rolls out its new interface, the Publishing Platform is losing some of what made it awesome before. Especially re: images. I've lost the ability to resize my graphic by clicking the resizing arrows that appear on the border of most applications.

It seems like a great tool to offer valuable content and increase the visibility of my brand. I've learned it's not a good tool to try to sell directly.
