LinkedIn today announced the launch of Trending Storylines, curated interest-based feeds that surface developing stories to help users discover and discuss news, ideas, and diverse perspectives from the largest group of professionals, publishers and editorial voices on LinkedIn. Trending Storylines is personalized for each user. LinkedIn is using a combination of algorithms and their editorial team.
Trending Storylines features:
- See what stories are developing: Each story is based on what’s trending, and personalized to you based on what we know about you, such as the industry you’re in.
- Go deep to learn more: You can discover, learn and explore more about the story being discussed within each storyline.
- Get diverse perspectives on every story: Each story includes multiple perspectives, ranging from news publishers and influencers, to people in your network, so that you can easily weigh up diverse opinions. For example, if you work in healthcare, you may see a perspective shared by a renowned healthcare expert, an article published by a top medical magazine, and a post shared by someone you follow or are connected to.
- Use hashtags to easily join the conversation: Each story will have a unique hashtag associated with it, making it easy for you to join the conversation and add your own take on the issue. As the conversations evolve, we will continue to ensure you’re seeing the latest perspectives.
Check out Trending Storylines on your LinkedIn mobile homescreen under the Trending tab and at the top right of the homepage on desktop. Trending Storylines is US only for now and it will expand to other countries soon.
