Tag Your Connections in Posts

Do you know you can tag your connections in your posts? This ensures that they see your post, so even if they haven’t visited LinkedIn for a while, they get a short email saying they’ve been tagged, which includes a link back to see what they’ve been tagged in.

To tag a connection in your post, simply type “@” followed by your connection’s name. Only the connection you tag will get a notification of your post.

Don’t be tempted to tag your connections continually and annoy them. Use it strategically to inform a connection of something important or specifically of interest to that person that you don’t want him or her to miss.

While you could also send them a message, if you post and tag as described above, the rest of your connections will also see the post in their news feed, so it kills two birds with one stone.
