LinkedIn added the ability for users to share photos, presentations and documents from the LinkedIn homepage on Thursday, just as people might already share status messages or links to news stories.
Earlier this month, LinkedIn began letting users upload visual content to their LinkedIn profiles.
With homepage support, LinkedIn sees users sharing content like infographics or individual pieces of work — such as an architect’s latest plans or the best photo from a photographer’s recent shoot — that they might not have otherwise shared on their profiles.
The new feature will roll out gradually to LinkedIn members around the world starting Thursday.
To share content when the feature becomes available to you, click on the paperclip icon on the right side of your share box and upload. To share content already hosted on another site, simply paste the URL in the share box.
