LinkedIn Video – What it Means for LinkedIn, and What it Means for You
LinkedIn has always been a premier social network in its own regard. The first thing that probably comes to your mind when you think about it might be something like ‘work,’ ‘connections,’ ‘networking,’ etc.
LinkedIn has taken several steps over the past few years in order to tighten structure, and offer more than just individualized hubs for networking. Blogging was a great start, allowing users to really utilize the site as their own thought platform.
The business networking platform recently began to allow users the opportunity to upload videos directly to the site itself – no linking necessary. When the videos show up in someone’s news feed, they’ll automatically start playing, in a similar fashion to Facebook.
The Success of Video
Video has become exceedingly important in the digital world. Facebook video has become a force all its own, and with LinkedIn’s program following that pattern, the introduction of direct uploads could really change the game for the business-savvy site. It has the opportunity to breathe new life into the platform. The introduction of video not only can help to draw people’s attention, but it can change the way we begin to do business with each other from the very start.
LinkedIn has provided an entirely new way for its users to consume content, and it’s through a platform that is gaining popularity every single day.
