Featured (Content) Section on Your Profile – FAQs
You can leverage the Featured section on your LinkedIn profile to showcase the best samples of your work, as evidence of your skills and experience. Check out some FAQs to learn more about the Featured section. Here’s a FAQ on this section from LinkedIn.
What is the Featured section?
The Featured section is a new area on your LinkedIn profile where you can showcase work samples that you’re most proud of. For example, you can feature posts that you’ve authored or re-shared, articles you’ve published on LinkedIn, and even external media like images, documents and links.
Why is there content being displayed in the Featured section on my profile?
Any media you may have previously had in your About section has been moved to the Featured section. This allows you to showcase your work to people who view your profile in a more prominent way.
How is this different than the Activity section on my profile?
By using the Featured section, you can pick and choose the content you’re most proud of and curate what other members will see.
In contrast, the Activity section highlights all your activity for the past 45 days, ordered by recency. This includes your articles, posts, comments and likes on other LinkedIn posts. Your Activity section is located just below the Featured section on your profile if you choose to enable it, or under your Dashboard.
What type of content can I include in my Featured section and how?
You can feature any posts you’ve authored or re-shared, articles you’ve published on LinkedIn, as well as external media, documents and links. We encourage you to showcase content that you’re proud of and that you feel is representative of your professional identity. Learn how you can feature samples of your work on your LinkedIn profile.
How much content can I include in my Featured section?
You can include as many samples of your work as you want in your Featured section, and you can manage what you’d like to feature by adding and removing content at any time.
What if I don’t have any content to include in my Featured section?
If you don’t have any content to feature, your Featured section will be hidden from people who view your profile.
Who will be able to see the content on my Featured section?
We abide by the visibility settings that you’ve set on your profile. For example, if you specify that the visibility of your posts is limited to your connections only, then only your connections will be able to see the content in your Featured section. Learn more about what people can see on your profile.
The content included in your Featured section will not be discoverable through search.
Will people be able to view items in my Featured section if they do not have a LinkedIn account?
No, in order to view content in the Featured section of someone’s LinkedIn profile, the viewer must have a LinkedIn account and must be logged in to LinkedIn.
How does the content get ordered in my Featured section, and can I reorder it?
By default, newly featured content will show up first in your Featured section. However, you can always manage how your content is displayed by reordering it.
When I share content with my network from my feed, will it automatically be added to the Featured section of my profile?
If you’d like to feature content as you’re posting it on your feed, you’ll have to click the More icon from the top right of the post to add it to your Featured section.
There is currently no way to automatically pin content that you’ve uploaded to your Featured section.
Can I hide or move content from my Featured section?
If I remove something from my Featured section, where does it go?
Depending on the type of content you’ve featured, you can decide whether to:
- Remove from Featured – to unpin the content from the Featured section, but not delete the content. You’ll still be able to find the unpinned content in your Activity section.
- Delete – to permanently delete the content from the Featured section (and your LinkedIn profile).
