LinkedIn Launches New Link Sharing Features

Starting today, LinkedIn is making it easier to share news stories and other links via your LinkedIn homepage.

The new LinkedIn share tool functions a lot like Facebook’s publisher tool. As you can see in this screenshot, its simple to attach a web page that you want to share, in addition to choosing if you want to share with anyone on LinkedIn or just your connections.

LinkedIn has also released a short video explaining how to share content and why it’s important to do so.
