So far no issues, it does offers some of the basic features that have been making the job of posting simpler. Comment, follow, subscribe are a few features that the site offers. The site makes it easy for me to post content from my website to LinkedIn followers.


  2. The problem with paid advertising is that although it works the price helps it be beyond the reach of numerous small businesses and it does not focus on the career level for employees. It could be also argued that in several professional services business advertising simply does not work – people need trust or personal referrals to do business. This is exactly where LinkedIn has its strongest point. reviews
