Currently I can only post to one LinkedIn account, right? Since LinkedIn only allows you to post to a personal account and not a company page, why not allow us to post to multiple accounts? That way we can get more exposure for our posts. -Jim
There are no limits to the number of LinkedIn profiles that you can connect to. Simply press the Add button and choose LinkedIn from the list of Destination services.
Similar but different question ... from the same LinkedIn account .... I may also be the owner / admin of other pages and groups. I'd like dlvr.it to route to a LinkedIn group page, rather than my profile page. (Same way as posting to Facebook gives you these options. I understand the LinkedIn API is open to this ...)
LinkedIn does not allow for posting to Groups, so this is not a feature that we can offer.
Thanks Jay. I knew it didn't used to, but I had heard that the LinkedIn API did now support it. (LinkedIn share buttons give the profile or group options for example. But I probably don't understand the mechanism well enough.)
In the same vein is it possible to post to multiple Linkedin accounts without the participants having to share their passwords. I am not trying a fast one here but I have a client who wants the ability to company announcements through their staffs linkedin accounts but the staff, understandably, do not want to share their private passwords.
I noticed HootSuite offers posting to a LinkedIn Group page. So, maybe this is something that you will offer soon.
I've been working to integrate with LinkedIn for a few weeks now and what a nightmare. I can't find any good automated ways to post. There are so many different profiles you can post to: Personal page wall, Company page wall, Company page Careers tab, Group page wall, Group page jobs tab, Group page job description tab... and I imagine the list continues. Not to mention the fact the the LinkedIn RSS feeds (like the Company blog rss feed option) don't always work properly and pull the wrong data.
If you could master integration with LinkedIn you would be in my hero!
