You’ve probably noticed a lot of the features that have been added to LinkedIn over the past few months, but here’s a quick breakdown:
LinkedIn jumped onto the Stories trend in March, adding their own version for mobile users in an attempt to create more ‘water cooler’ moments – perhaps an attempt to try and curb the more personal posts that are continually cropping up on the platform?
