This week LinkedIn launched an optional share button that enables users to spread content within their LinkedIn network. With just a few lines of code, businesses, bloggers and publishers can include a share button on their site that allows readers and visitors to share information with others.
There are three different options available for the share button: vertical with a share counter, a smaller horizontal button with the counter, or a horizontal button with no counter. LinkedIn’s Publishers page is a valuable resource for publishers.
Of course there are many other options for sharing information and the competition is strong. However, now avid LinkedIn professionals can stay involved and informed on industry trends and other business news. With LinkedIn’s new share button, it should be easier to share with clients and peers via white papers, presentations, slideshare, etc.
