Setting up feedly + LinkedIn

With over 300 million members, LinkedIn is the largest professional network in the world. Sharing quality content to LinkedIn can help you to better connect with your peers and develop your profile as a thought leader. Use feedly to find sources of knowledge and inspiration worth sharing with your colleagues, and use feedly Pro's simple LinkedIn integration to spread that information to your network.
