In an effort to respond to the massive changes brought about by COVID-19 to our work life, such as an increase in working from home and an increase in virtual events, LinkedIn has rolled out a couple of new features for administrators of Company Pages. Let’s go over them today.
Company page admins now have the ability to create events. If you’ve ever created an event on Facebook the interface in the photo above will look pretty familiar. I think this is a great addition by LinkedIn. It will be very useful for the promotion of corporate events, launch events, online conferences and webinars.
New Detailed Follower Insights
With this new feature, you can now see, profile by profile, who’s following your company page. Before this update, you could only see a total number of followers and demographic breakdowns. On the topic of LinkedIn demographics, it’s worth pointing out that they offer a lot of useful insights and data. You can see where most of your followers are located, for example.
This is useful if you have to concern yourself with an audience that’s based in multiple time zones. You can schedule posts to be posted at optimal times in your most populated time zones. In addition to location, you can also sort demographics by job function, seniority and company.
