So far, your LinkedIn feed has been filled with average content. Acquaintances announcing new jobs. Five learnings from doing good in the community. These are great, but they don’t necessarily help your career. We want to change that. We want to make the Feed a great place to learn and boost your career further.
Quality content is integral to LinkedIn’s content ecosystem. Our UX Research team has identified six core pillars of creator needs that our team needs to design for in order to help creators thrive on LinkedIn.
Because LinkedIn is new to the creator game, we move quickly to validate ideas to see what effectively helps our creators get on top of their game. Each experiments took less than a quarter from design to shipping. We monitor the metrics and deliver learnings to Notifications, Feed, Analytics and Profile teams so they can use these learnings to iterate their features.
When a member is mentioned in a post, the conversation is likely to include a high quality opinion. Therefore we nudge the member to reshare the post to add their voice as a post in addition to the comment to spark meaningful conversation on LinkedIn.

Sharebox on the Feed is the first thing any creator sees on LinkedIn. Using the Interests AI and their recent Profile edits, we give post inspirations in this prime space to give inspiration for the Creators to post to their audience.
