Microsoft has reported that growth on LinkedIn continues to rise, with the platform seeing “record levels of engagement” due to the overwhelming number of people who are currently out of work.

According to the Microsoft FY20 Third Quarter Earnings Conference Call,

“Amidst a changing jobs market, LinkedIn’s role in creating economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce has never been more acute.

LinkedIn is where more than 690 million professionals go to connect, learn new skills, and find new opportunities – contributing to record levels of engagement across the platform in Q3.”

We are helping organizations attract, retain, and develop talent with our portfolio of Talent Solutions, Talent Insights, Glint, and LinkedIn Learning. Professionals watched nearly 4 million hours of content on LinkedIn Learning in March, a nearly fifty percent increase month-over-month.”

Released in January, Pages now have 50 million organizations around the world that rely on their LinkedIn Business Pages to help them engage with their potential customers seamlessly. LinkedIn is constantly investing in Pages and have recently introduced features like Employee Notifications, Kudos and Team Moments and Community Hashtags so you can build a sense of community within your business and promote your company’s ideals.

Also added within the last couple weeks was LinkedIn Polls – Here are some options you have when casting a poll.
Poll Visibility

When creating a poll you can adjust the visibility however you wish.

The default visibility setting is “anyone,” but other options include:

  • Anyone + Twitter – visible to anyone on both LinkedIn and Twitter.
  • Connections only – visible to 1st-degree connections of the poll author only.
  • Group members – only visible to members of a group where the poll was shared.
  • Event attendees – visible to any attendee of a specific event.

Poll Insights

The author of a poll will be able to view who voted and how each person voted while also viewing aggregate results displayed in a percentage format and the number of votes per option.

When a poll is created by a LinkedIn Page, all admins of that LinkedIn Page will be able to see who voted and how each person voted.
