When you tag someone, LinkedIn shares your update in the feed of that person’s connections. So your audience grows.
LinkedIn also messages the tagged person. For example, “Russell Lundberg tagged you in a post.”
To tag, type “@“ sign, then begin typing their name exactly as it appears in their profile. Select the correct name from the popup menu. If you always add value, are respectful, and write to drive engagement, tagging is a big win for everyone.
Pro Tip: if the person’s name doesn’t appear in the popup, try using 2 “@“ signs. Or after typing their name, also type something else from their profile, such as the company. Thanks to …….ANDY FOOTE……. for this suggestion.
