Options for posting via the API to LinkedIn
JSON for a basic post with a link and image to LinkedIn:
"post": "The best LinkedIn post ever #best https://www.linkedin.com",
- LinkedIn will automatically preview the link in the post unless there is an image or video included. In the above example the image will show. Removing the image will cause the link preview to show.
- Hashtags are clickable in LinkedIn.
Set a caption for a LinkedIn media video posted.
Accepts an Array of string caption text. Each Array must correspond to a media url. E.g. ["This is my best pic", "😃 here is the next one"] refers to the 1st and 2nd urls in
"mediaCaptions": ["This is my best video"]
Note, while you can set captions for images, only video captions are displayed on LinkedIn.
LinkedIn must be reauthorized every year via the Social Accounts page.
- An email and webhook social action notification will be sent 10 days in advance of authorization expiration.
- The user will see on their social account linkage page an alert and a refresh button 30 days prior to expiration.
