‘The only thing worse than 2020': LinkedIn joins Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat in offering Stories… but reviews are mixed

Added 09-25-20 04:37:02am EST - “Microsoft-owned LinkedIn has launched its latest revamp, which includes the new Snapchat-esque Stories feature. Despite the company's claims to the contrary, the addition has been met with confusion and mockery.” -


Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From “‘The only thing worse than 2020’: LinkedIn joins Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat in offering Stories… but reviews are mixed”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The professional networking site has over 700 million users worldwide and has been testing its new look, complete with the Stories function, for the past few months in Brazil, the Netherlands, Australia, UAE and France. 

Recently, users in the US and Canada were given access to the new LinkedIn, and it will continue to be rolled out worldwide over the coming weeks. 

LinkedIn Stories boasts many of the features found on its Instagram and Snapchat forebears: take a photo or a short video and adorn it with GIFs before uploading it to the site, where it will last for 24 hours before disappearing into the ether. Fear not – you can also change the privacy settings of your posts, should you use the feature at all.

Why would I ever post a story on LinkedIn?“Hey fam turns out I was fired, can get 100 reshares???”

And stories will we post on LinkedIn?Hello, give me a job? Or management gyan? Either way do you want those to disappear in 24 hours? And imagine if one has to see same stories by the same people across three platforms now!
