  • You can post a LinkedIn story to your profile as a temporary post similar to Instagram stories or Twitter fleets.
  • To post LinkedIn stories, tap the "Your story" button in the stories section at the top of your mobile app, or tap "Share a story" in the Post menu.
  • To create your story, you can combine a photo or video with text and stickers, then tap "Share story."

Like any social network, LinkedIn offers several ways to post news, commentary, and other kinds of content for your followers to read and engage with.

In addition to traditional posts, LinkedIn now allows you to create a Story. Similar to Instagram stories, these are temporary posts that only exist for 24 hours. After one day, they simply disappear from your profile.
