Images are a great tool for professionals to showcase their work and other activities on LinkedIn. LinkedIn has always understood this, and they have just introduced a new feature which will allow its users to share multiple photos in one post.
LinkedIn now shares more images at once
Previously, LinkedIn users can only share one image per post. This limited the users the ability to tell a story with photos. With its new update, the site now lets you select multiple images to include in your posts. LinkedIn says that the new feature gives users the opportunity to share more views of the experience they had.
The new feature is already available for iOS, and is set to be rolled out for Android and desktop users. Adding multiple images to your post follows the same image uploading procedure as before, as shown here:
LinkedIn has not yet specified how many pictures will be supported for each upload, which means you will have to experiment. The site also did not mention whether there are additional enhancement tools included in the update.
Frequent performance upgrades
This is the latest in a line of many user-experience enhancements that LinkedIn has rolled out in the last few months. These include:
- New profile image editing tools
- The ability to add images to comments
- The Suggested Stories feature
- Native video
- Tracking keywords used to discover your profile
- A Terms of Service update
These new features serve as small changes designed to gradually evolve LinkedIn’s functionality in everyday professional use.
Here’s an example of a live post using multiple photos:
Taking advantage of multi-image posting
LinkedIn’s new multi-image posting update opens the doors for a lot of potential uses:
- Individuals can employ it to further highlight the various professional activities that they participated in, such as industry events.
- Businesses can now upload more images of their new products.
- The feature can also be used to upload more graphics and charts that will considerably increase the usefulness of an educational post.
The feature also impacts the shareability of your posts. The more images you include in a post, the more that it will catch the attention of your audience and encourage them to share it with their connections. And by boosting your own network of followers via Devumi’s LinkedIn Followers Service, you can increase the reach of your images and post even further.
Give your LinkedIn posts a boost with more images
LinkedIn might be the last of the prominent social media platforms to add multi-image uploading to its posting function, but it is certainly bringing something to the table for its community. The new feature gives users more power to engage with their professional audience. Check it out today and see for yourself how it can enhance your posts.
