How to publish an article on LinkedIn

LinkedIn (Android | iOS | Web) is an excellent platform for those who want to create a professional network and look for a job. Among other resources, the social network allows its users to write and publish articles.

Unlike a standard publication, an article is a more complex text and serves to expand discussions on certain topics on the platform. In addition, it will become part of your professional profile and can be found by users inside and outside the social network.
