LinkedIn Enhances Collaborative Articles to Foster Expertise Sharing and Engagement2 min read
LinkedIn is stepping up its game with fresh updates to its Collaborative Articles feature, a powerful tool that leverages AI-generated prompts to beckon specific LinkedIn users to share their expertise on a chosen topic. Since its launch in March, Collaborative Articles have swiftly become a driving force on the platform, facilitating over a million expert contributions. Users are enticed not only by the prospect of sharing their knowledge but also by the allure of earning a prestigious Community Top Voice badge, which enhances their professional profile’s appeal. As a result, LinkedIn is boosting its commitment to this feature.
The latest enhancements to Collaborative Articles emphasize user contributions. The layout has been reimagined to give contributors a more prominent position at the top of the post. The new display format places less emphasis on the AI prompt, creating a prime spot for showcasing the insights of LinkedIn members. Additionally, a full set of reactions can now be employed in-stream, allowing for responses to Collaborative posts with the usual in-feed emoji characters.
LinkedIn’s user interface has been redesigned to make it effortless for readers to navigate through different contributions. Collaborative Article notifications have also been improved, ensuring users are guided toward the most relevant posts that can benefit from their expertise. The quality of AI prompts has been enhanced to produce more engaging results, and users can now select their preferred skills for contribution by filling out the “Top Skills” section of their profile.
LinkedIn has refined its ability to understand each user’s areas of interest based on their in-app activity. In addition, a display of articles available for contribution has been added to facilitate the pursuit of the coveted “Top Voice” badge. This badge has become a symbol of authority on the platform, motivating more LinkedIn users to join in, share their insights, and bolster their professional status.
In essence, LinkedIn has created a clever activation that utilizes AI prompts to foster increased in-app engagement. The quest for a “Top Voice” badge has inspired more users to actively participate in Collaborative Articles, contributing to the platform’s ever-growing pool of knowledge and expertise. Just as a verification badge enhances one’s standing on Twitter, the “Top Voice” badge elevates a user above the crowd on LinkedIn, and more professionals are eager to showcase their expertise.
With these new updates, LinkedIn aims to further encourage users to participate in this valuable engagement feature.
