What content do you post on LinkedIn?

madza profile image Madza ・1 min read

I recently created an account on LinkedIn based on the responses of discussion a month ago. Thanks everyone for the responses! πŸ™β€

I'm starting to get around and understand the principles behind the site. I'm aware you can post any type of media there like quick updates, post images, videos, events, polls, and even write expanded articles.

What type of content do you usually post there and what gives the best engagement rates from your experience?

I tried to post content in LinkedIn, and I got the impression that it's a complete waste of time. Now I'm no fan of social media in general, but LinkedIn seems especially pointless for most people. Apart from the basic functionality that you can search someone's profile and see quickly what he has done in the past, LinkedIn is mostly noise as far as I'm concerned.

What content to post?
Nothing deep or personal.
If I were more cynical, I would make a list of "positive inspirational quotes" and have that bullshit automatically posted with one line of text, ten hashtags and call to actions "please share my post to your network if the sun is hot and the sky is blue".

I usually share blog posts I post on my personal site. In addition, I share my projects I have done.
