LinkedIn Video: Share your professional world and start conversations

Every day, millions of LinkedIn members participate in conversations about their work, career, and professional interests. We’ve seen countless examples of how these conversations can help members to get ahead in their careers and find their way in to new opportunities.

This is why we continue to invest in new and better tools for you to easily discover content, and also join the conversation. For example, we’ve made it easier for you to share your experiences with the addition of multiple photos in your posts, and we’ve introduced Trending Storylines so you can stay on top of conversations from other professionals, influencers, professionals and news publishers.

Now, we’re adding another way to share your experiences and start conversations: native video on LinkedIn. We began testing video last month and we’ve seen so many personal and inspiring videos, such as Edwin Rhemrev detailing his process for sketching a set design; Madison Allen taking people behind the scenes by showing what her company’s forklift can do; and Chris Chien sharing an inside scoop at Comic Con.

Ready to start recording? Here’s how:

In the LinkedIn mobile app, look for the share box at the top of the feed (iOS) or the post button (Android) and tap on the video icon. You can record a video in the app, or upload something you recorded earlier.

See who’s viewing your videos

After you post a video, you can see key audience insights such as the top companies, titles and locations of your viewers, as well as how many views, likes, and comments your videos are receiving. With these insights you can better understand if you’re reaching the people and companies that matter to you. You can find these analytics in the dashboard section of your LinkedIn profile on both mobile and desktop.

We will be rolling this out to all members globally over the coming weeks.
