Connect a LinkedIn account

Connect a LinkedIn profile or Page to Hootsuite to manage it from the same place as your other social media accounts. When you connect a LinkedIn account to Hootsuite, you can publish to it, engage with your audience, create reports, and more. Each LinkedIn user can connect up to 100 Pages, including Showcase and University Pages.

To add social accounts to Hootsuite organizations, you need super admin, admin, or custom Add social networks permissions for your Hootsuite organization. To find out more, see Manage your organization's social accounts.

Watch Introduction to LinkedIn for Business to learn about LinkedIn and LinkedIn Pages. Visit Hootsuite Academy to watch more videos, take courses, or earn industry-recognized certifications.

Before you begin

If you're connecting a Page to Hootsuite, make sure that your personal LinkedIn account is a Super admin of the Page. You'll sign in with your LinkedIn account to give Hootsuite access to your Pages, but you don't need to connect your personal LinkedIn profile to Hootsuite. To learn more, see LinkedIn Page Admin Roles - Overview in the LinkedIn Help Center.
