You can now schedule posts on LinkedIn


With almost all the social media platforms now introducing the native scheduling feature, LinkedIn is also running on the same track.

Users will soon be able to schedule posts on LinkedIn to publish at a later time.

According to an online post from the web developer and app researcher Nima Owji back in August, the Microsoft-owned social network has apparently been testing the new feature internally for a number of months already.

However, it appears that LinkedIn is now getting ready for prime time, according to a growing number of reports across social media.

Social media expert and well-known tipper Matt Navarra recently informed on social media that he was now able to use the post-scheduling tool on both the LinkedIn website and the Android app.

Only some people are able to access this new feature as it is still in its testing mode.

If the functionality is enabled, users will notice a small clock icon next to the “post” button in the message compose box.

When a user hits the clock icon, they are given the option to schedule their post for a particular date and half-hourly time window.

The usability and relevance of this new feature is still a little questionable since third-party platforms like Hootsuite and Buffer have offered comparable capabilities for a time now.

Nevertheless, not everyone is comfortable granting access to their LinkedIn accounts to third-party platforms due to data privacy concerns.

Additionally, native functionality is almost always more convenient, especially for those who only want to share a specific piece of content with their LinkedIn followers.
