Adding rich media to profiles

1 Comment

Now that LinkedIn is rolling out the ability to add rich media to personal profiles, I wonder if we should be providing clients with some rich media to share.

If you can add rich media to your profile, you will see the following when you visit Edit Profile:


We can either upload files or link to resources online. There is a massive range of content providers supported (full list here), but some of the most interesting ones include:

  • Pinterest
  • Twitpic
  • YouTube
  • Prezi
  • Slideshare

Most common file types are also supported, including PDF, PPT, DOC, PNG, GIF, JPEG.

I think if we are able to create any relevant content to distribute on client LinkedIn profiles – or recommend they use any existing resources – this would be a great boost to their LinkedIn presence.
