#3: Engagement Features on LinkedIn Company Pages
LinkedIn hasn’t always made it easy for brands to participate in conversations taking place across the social media networks. Indeed, until recently, LinkedIn only allows brands to engage with content on their own company pages or when responding to mentions and followed hashtags.
Brands have a plenty of new ways to interact with LinkedIn content as of June 2022. You can now interact with any feed post as if it were your company’s LinkedIn page. The post does not have to include a tag to your company page or one of the hashtags your brand uses.
You have several options for finding engaging content, including:
- Your own personal feed, which includes everyone and everything you follow.
- Any member profile or company page you visit, each of which has its own feed.
- The company’s page feed, which includes page posts, employee posts, and hashtags.
On behalf of your page, what are the types of content you are not able to interact with? Till now, you can’t comment as your page on events, articles, newsletters, or groups — specially any content that doesn’t appear in your feed.
As it provides brands with so many ways to engage, this feature creates countless opportunities to achieve goals such as:
• Including your company’s unique perspective on current issues.
• Exclusive insights into niche industry topics.
• Developing relationships with potential business partners.
• Thank you for sharing your company’s content with members and brands.
• Adding content from other creators to your company page.
By default, anyone on or off LinkedIn can see contents you share from your company page. Click the Anyone button and then select Targeted Audience if you want more control over who sees your share.
LinkedIn also allows you to share outside of the platform. Choose Copy Link to get a shareable link that you can copy and paste into an email or another social media platform. You can also choose Twitter or Facebook to open either platform immediately and auto-generate a post.
It appears that your page can also share content directly through a LinkedIn message.

If you click the Send button and try to send a message as your company page, it will send as your personal profile instead.
