Real life story: a savvy LinkedIn user called saying he needed to know how to incorporate a PDF into a piece he wanted to show his connections on LinkedIn.

His dilemma: it’s not really an update (like the URL of an article), it’s not really a photo and it’s certainly not a Post.

What to do? he asked me.

Well, reasoning this out loud with him: I believe a PDF is closer to a photo than anything else you can choose from so I advised him to look at his LinkedIn Home Page and to upload it as a photo (second selection).share3


The PDF is on his hard drive and he can easily upload it.

And that’s what he did.

His update with the PDF looks fine:PDFshare




Another mystery solved and a lesson for us all to use for another time.

Do you have a “how the heck do you do {that} on LinkedIn” question?
