Additionally, LinkedIn will soon provide another way to share your professional insights and perspectives as it plan to bring native videos, so that users can easily record and post videos directly from the LinkedIn app. The feature is currently rolled out to a small group of members on mobile.

Now, when you share posts publicly, guests and logged out members can also now see these publicly shared posts, videos and articles on LinkedIn—you just need to post the URL to anywhere including other social networks to share. Should you decide to share with your connections only, you can always choose this option from the share box.
