Latest LinkedIn Updates That Could Get You More Exposure

LinkedIn Updates June 2024

[June 2024] Here are the latest updates LinkedIn has incorporated into the platform that I believe active users will want to be aware of and implement. Making the platform work ‘for you’ is key because only a small percentage of users will take action and adjust with the changes.

You may not agree with some of the updates LinkedIn or any other social platform makes, but if you are an active user on these platforms you might as well leverage them in your favor.

Creator Mode

Blue Connect or Follow choice was removed. Choose primary button now in settings.

  • If you already have creator mode turned on, you would still be afforded the additional Creator tools: LinkedIn Live, LinkedIn Audio, Newsletters, Follow Link.
  • Newsletters no longer require Creator Mode.
  • No more hashtags indicating the topics you talk about

Removing Inactive Connections

Recently I noticed a message from LinkedIn under my network connections that they are removing inactive connections so my connection list may have changed. This is probably a good thing especially for those who never take time to review & remove.

Now when you react to a post, LinkedIn will suggest someone you may want to connect with.
