Today we’re happy to announce the launch of the WordPress App for LinkedIn, the largest online network for professionals.
The WordPress App for LinkedIn helps you share ideas and updates with your LinkedIn network, keeping your trusted contacts in the loop, effortlessly.
To add the WordPress App to your LinkedIn account, visit the LinkedIn Application Directory. Select the WordPress App, enter your blog’s URL, and choose to display either all of your blog posts or just those tagged with “LinkedIn.” Save, and you’re all set!
Now your network will be notified when you post something new to your WordPress.com or WordPress.org blog. Your WordPress avatar will automatically display alongside the top post (we, of course, suggest you use Gravatar for that).
You can opt to display your WordPress blog on your LinkedIn Profile and your LinkedIn Homepage, where it’ll display as a drag-and-drop module in the right-hand column.
Update: LinkedIn was struggling to cope with the load after launch, which caused problems for some users. Things seem to be working better now. And just to reiterate: the WordPress App for LinkedIn works with both self-hosted WordPress blogs and WordPress.com blogs.
