LinkedIn Makes It Easier to Interact with Influencer Posts and Discover Thought Leaders

LinkedIn introduced the exclusive “Influencer” category in late 2012, giving professionals the ability to follow the thoughts of the world’s leading entrepreneurs, executives, philanthropists, and politicians. The feature has since seen huge success – just look at Bill Gates’ first post, which received 1 million page views in its first 48 hours. Over 300 Influencers posting helpful, thought provoking narratives about their experiences of a variety of professional issues. Now LinkedIn makes it easier to interact with Influencer posts, start relevant conversations with other users, and discover new Influencers to follow.
