LinkedIn Starts Rolling Out their New Out Photo Tagging Option

LinkedIn has over the last couple of years proven to be one of the most relied upon social network for professionals. Whether you are looking for your first job, you are a business owner who owns a small shop or a marketing executive working with a major company, LinkedIn will offer exactly what you are looking for. To make the platform better, LinkedIn is now rolling out some new image tools and options. These new additions are designed to add the user’s creativity while at the same time creating a better channel of generating more from on-platform management.


One of the key additions that you should take not of is the Photo-tagging feature which is now available for both the mobile app and desktop users. With this new option, you can be able to tag other users via the Linkedin profile within posted images. This option was first rolled out last month and not every LinkedIn user has had a chance to access it yet.


If you have been tagging people in your images, then you are sure to find this new option easier to use since it is straightforward. The post creator or any other person who happens to be tagged in the image can remove the tags once they have been posted. As soon as you tag someone and finish your post, the LinkedIn user will receive a notification together with an Email letting them know that they have been tagged.

Unfortunately, users who have switched off their tag notifications will not be notified. These new additions are expected to increase on-platform engagement by LinkedIn users once they are made available to everyone. It is not yet clear whether these new options will work for LinkedIn users. However, we have to wait and see how people react before determining whether it is a success or not.
