LinkedIn has really been loosening up its tie thus far in 2018.

First, the professional network introduced its In It Together integrated marketing campaign during the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards in January, trying in part to shed its “white collar businesspeople” stereotype.

Then, last month, LinkedIn added a touch of Snapchat and Instagram with its debut of filters and text styles for members’ videos.

And the latest attempt to inject some fun into LinkedIn was Wednesday’s announcement that the professional network teamed up with Tenor to allow users to integrate GIFs directly into their messages.
