According to LinkedIn, Targeted Status Updates aims to make it easier for members to receive relevant information from companies they follow. In turn, companies can now communicate with their followers in a very personalized way and provide content tailored to specific audiences.
So, why follow companies? We did a study recently where we found that 67% of our members follow a company to gain industry insights, 61% for company news, while 49% are attracted by the peer community.
LinkedIn says, getting company status updates will allow you to accomplish this, and now with a pool of 2 million companies it opens up endless possibilities. When following a company, you benefit from receiving engaging insights like company news, industry trends and job opportunities in your daily news feed.
