Q3: Am I a selected LinkedIn Influencer if I see publish a post on my #LinkedIn page?
Denise Bahs
A3: no. #LinkedIn influencers are selected by LinkedIn.
Brian Gilb
A3: No, just posting a #blog does not make you an expert in anything, unless you are validated by others.
Mimi Murray Meagher
A3: #LinkedIn selects Influencers, does anyone know the criteria?
Paul Gillin
I haven't heard whether you can become a LI influencer through publishing on LI. Anyone know?
Paul Krappman
A3: No. Selected LinkedIn influencers are a community hand selected by LinkedIn #LinkedInPublishing
Brian Gilb
A3: Influencers on LinkedIn either have credentials in their field or have enough of a following and interaction with others to get them that status.
Paul Krappman
Which influencers on LinkedIn do you follow?
CatherineCameronHeld
A3 Agree @denisebahs LinkedIn selects the groups. This was first how Pulse started
Profitecture
To be #LinkedIn #Influencer it's invite-only, initiated by LI
Paul Krappman
I follow Reid Hoffman and David Edelman...
CatherineCameronHeld
@paulkrappman I also like anything @pgillin posts on LinkedIn
Profitecture
Q2: Is "publish a post" on #LinkedIn different from "status update"?
Brian Gilb
A2: status updates go to your followers and connections, the posting in #Pulse goes toward the industry followers.
Denise Bahs
A2: Yes, a post is a long form piece of content (blog post), status update is sharing or asking a question.
Brian Gilb
A2: #Pulse is a lot more public and has a lot more reach, where as status updates are just for those you are connected to.
CatherineCameronHeld
A2 very different! Post = long-form. Status=short
Mimi Murray Meagher
A2: A status update appears in your connections news feeds, publish posts become a part of your #LinkedIn profile page!
Paul Krappman
Status updates are meant to be quick hits...sharing thoughts comments or news. #LinkedInPublishing
Paul Gillin
@MeagherMimi That's an important distinction. The posts appear on your profile.
