Add a LinkedIn stream

  

Create streams for monitoring certain engagement on your connected Pages or profiles.

Add a stream to a new board

When you select New board, you have three options for creating streams: My posts and mentions, My industry, and Browse all streams.

The My posts and mentions, My industry, and Browse all streams for creating new boards

The first two walk you through creating streams specific to your own posts, or search streams based on keywords and hashtags in your industry. The Browse all streams option lets you get straight into building streams on your own.

Select Get Started, select a profile from the drop-down, and then select from the available streams for that profile.

The stream options available for LinkedIn

Add a stream to an existing board

Add a stream to an existing board at any time (boards have a limit of 10 streams).

  1. Go to Streams .
  2. Create or select the board that will host the stream.
  3. Select Add Stream.
  4. Select LinkedIn from the list on the left.
  5. Select a profile from the drop-down.
  6. Select the streams to add.

Create a comment stream

If a particular LinkedIn post is getting a lot of comments, you can create a separate comment stream for that post. This lets you manage its engagement without disrupting the rest of your monitoring in the stream.

  • Select More Actions  below the post, and then select Create Comment Stream.

Available stream types and stream content

The types of streams available for LinkedIn, and what you can do with them, depend on the functionality made available by LinkedIn to third parties like Hootsuite.

Notes:

  • LinkedIn polls are not supported, so they won’t appear in streams.
  • LinkedIn video posts are not supported in streams.
  • Your username will display as Private LinkedIn Profile in streams if ‘Profile visibility off LinkedIn’ is disabled in your LinkedIn account settings.

Tip: Select the timestamp on any post in a stream to open it in LinkedIn and view it there.
