LinkedIn Influencers Can Now Create And Post 30-Second Videos

Many a times you want to watch out for your favorite LinkedIn influencer live. It would be beyond awesome if you see them live discussing topics that matter to you. LinkedIn, the largest professional network has finally given you an opportunity to do so.


The social network has pitched in a feature that will enable select influencers to create 30-second videos discussing topics that users want to watch. On behalf of LinkedIn, Jonathan (Jasper) Sherman-Presser, who works on media technology and product strategy announced the feature in its official blog:

“Curious to get tips from Naomi Simson and Guy Kawasaki on how to ace your next pitch? Or perhaps you’d like to hear from KIPP co-founder Mike Feinberg and edX CEO Anant Agarwal about how they think colleges should measure success.

With videos like these, you’ll get an intimate look at where they work and hear their honest thoughts on topics central to the professional world, such as these videos from Reid Hoffman, Leila Janah and Tomasz Tunguz on how artificial intelligence will change the workplace.”

When an influencer you follow posts a video, that video will appear directly in your feed. From there, you can dive in to see what other influencers have to say about that topic, weigh in with a comment and respond to comments from other members.
