Mention LinkedIn Pages that you don't manage#234

Hey guys, great work so far!

I don’t know if it’s possible via the LinkedIn API, but tagging would be great. The only tool I know, which has this option is hootsuite - but you can only tag company accounts, no private accounts.

Hi Marcus. Only a few 3rd party apps have access to that LinkedIn API endpoint. As you may have imagined, we don’t, even though we’re part of their marketing developer platform.

We will soon allow you to mention companies that you do manage. That’s something we do have access.

P.S. LinkedIn does not have an API endpoint for mentioning other people in order to prevent spamming.

Thanks for your quick response. I already assumed that there might be a restriction at some point. But that’s good to know :-)

You can now mention the LinkedIn Pages that you manage in your posts.

We still have to wait on LinkedIn to give us API access that will allow you to mention the Pages that you don’t manage. No estimate date on this.
