Running a WordPress.com based blog, want to share your posts with your LinkedIn connections? Now you can! The WordPress.com team, today announced that the Publicize feature now connects with LinkedIn.
"To activate Publicize for LinkedIn, head to Settings -> Sharing in your dashboard and click Connect to LinkedIn. Please note that you need to have a LinkedIn account before you can connect it with your WordPress.com site," noted Tim Mooreon WordPress.com blog.
"After you've approved the connection, you'll see LinkedIn listed in the Publish module next to the post editor. Here you can customize the message for the update you'll send out to LinkedIn and any other sharing services you have connected. You can also opt out of Publicizing a particular post by unchecking the box next to the name of the service," explained Mooreon.
A LinkedIn sharing button was also recently added to the Sharing feature on WordPress.com, which can be displayed at the bottom of your posts and pages. Visit your Settings -> Sharing panel and you'll see LinkedIn as one of the Available Services.
