LinkedIn officially rolled out its LinkedIn Stories feature last month. Similar to Instagram or Facebook Stories, LinkedIn Stories allows users to share photos or short videos that appear at the top of users’ feeds.

Our guide will show you how to add text to a LinkedIn Stories post.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the LinkedIn application on iOS. Also note, you can add text to a LinkedIn Stories post before or after capturing a photo or video, but for our guide, we’re adding text after a photo has been taken.

Step 1: Once you’ve taken or imported a photo or video in Stories, tap the text icon in the top-right corner of the screen.

Step 2: Type the text you want to add to your post.
