Who owns your LinkedIn content?

If you’re a LinkedIn user read on, you might be pleasantly surprised…

You own your content and LinkedIn confirmed this in a recent email sent out to all users. It was rather a nice surprise when I got the email; normally it’s bad news when you get a service announcement from a social media platform. But not this time!

LinkedIn wanted to let us know that they’ve updated their user agreement but also wanted to reassure users of the following:

  • You control if you’re content is shown in third party advertising
  • You decide when your content is deleted – if you delete it, it really is deleted
  • You own the rights to what you post on LinkedIn so you can share it and reuse it wherever you want

In addition they’ve added some new control tools for users and updated their privacy policy. But why not read their blog to find out more»

Thanks LinkedIn 🙂
