Start each day with the most important news – right on your LinkedIn homepage.
LinkedIn News provides you with the most important articles about your company, competitors, and industry.
- Discuss interesting news privately with colleagues from your company
- Submit new articles that you find online and share news with the rest of your network
The news module collects news about the company you have listed on your profile. If you are not receiving news, please make sure that your current organization is listed. If you still don’t have a news module, please be patient as we’re still working on rolling out news to include all companies and users.
The news module appears on your Home page and updates you with the latest news relevant to your company and industry categorized by:
- Most Read: articles that have been viewed the most by members of your company
- Company: articles that are about your company
- Other Companies: articles that are about similar companies and competitors
- Industry: articles about your industry
For a more detailed list of important news, you can click through to the news homepage by either clicking the [My Company] News header or clicking “See more news”. The news homepage provides an archive of relevant articles sorted by Company, Industry, Other Companies, and Most Discussed.
The news feature allows you to discuss relevant articles with people in your company. To comment on an article, you can either start a discussion or join an existing discussion within your network. If the article does not have any comments there will be a link to “Start Discussion”. If the article already has a few comments it will show that there are, for example, “(4 comments)”. Clicking on either of those links will bring you to a discussion page that all confirmed users within the network have access to view and interact with. To post a comment, enter it in the comment box and click “Submit”. Network updates will be sent if your privacy settings are set to notify connections.
When you comment on an article, everyone that is a confirmed and current member of that group has access to see it. In order to be a confirmed member of a company group, you must verify your company email address through your LinkedIn Account & Settings
Discovered an interesting story and want to share it? Click on the share link on the bottom right of the story and select the recipients from your network. You can also compose a short message with your thoughts and exchange messages about the article. The connections that you have selected to share the article with will receive a message in their LinkedIn email, and pending their preferences, they may also receive an email alerting them that you shared the news article.
You can also recommend an article to your entire network by clicking on “Recommend” in the lower left side of the article on the News home page. This will share the article as a network update to all of your connections.
If you have found an article that you would like to share and it’s not on the news feed, you can submit it and share it with your network or certain connections. On the news module on your homepage, click on “Submit a new article” in the lower left hand corner of the module. After entering in the URL and title of the article, you can decide to share it with your network or with a select group of connections.
LinkedIn News has a mix of traditional media articles as well as blogosphere feeds. You can also include content from RSS feeds of blogs you have mentioned in your public LinkedIn Profiles. To do so, edit the “Website” section of your profile and enter in your blog as “My RSS Feed”. For more information about editing your profile, click here.
