LinkedIn Debunks Its Feed Algorithm Myths

In a new series of videos that will be released over the next few weeks, LinkedIn will debunk common myths about how its algorithm works.

The series aims to clarify the types of content that LinkedIn surfaces in people's feeds, while also addressing misconceptions and assumptions.

People can post about whatever they want on LinkedIn, but not all content is equally visible.

"We welcome all kinds of conversations on LinkedIn, but primarily we want to have conversations that people care about," says Linkedin.

According to that statement, the LinkedIn feed prefers to surface content that is genuine & relevant to other people in your network.

Discussions about working from home or the challenges of being a parent working from home are examples of such content.

Finally, LinkedIn claims that posts about difficult-to-discuss topics, such as mental health and wellbeing, perform well in the feed.
