LinkedIn Members Can Now Tag Fellow Members in Photos They Post

The professional network’s messaging feature began supporting videos

LinkedIn added two new conversation-sparking features Wednesday: photo tagging and the ability to add videos to messages.

Senior director of product management Pete Davies said in a blog post that members who post photos can now tag people in them, writing, “The world seems smaller and your community a little tighter when you let people know who is who.”

Videos can now be included in messages, with Davies writing, “Millions of members have posted videos and shared them with their connections or in groups: sharing ideas, experiences or simply a view into their working life.”

LinkedIn also tweaked its mobile application, moving the post button to the bottom-center of the screen and the message button to the top-right corner.

Finally, the professional network made it easier for people to find groups they belong to and hashtags they follow. They will now appear on the right side of the feed in desktop or by clicking on the profile picture in the mobile app.
