@Mentioning when creating a LinkedIn post

madamiak

HubSpot should create the ability to @ mention companies and organizations when drafting a LinkedIn post in HubSpot. Being able to @ mention in LinkedIn posts would help our organization engage with clients and partners. 

 

Since you're able to @ mention when posting from LinkedIn and you're able to @ mention when posting a Twitter post from HubSpot, it seems like building the function would be possible.

LinkedIn is the main platform for connecting with B2B prospects for ourselves and clients.
This @ mention feature would be brilliant, I'm in favour!

Add ability to @ tag companies and people in a LinkedIn social media post. You can do it natively on LinkedIn. Is there a limitation in their APIs that don't allow Hubspot posting to do it?

Agreed!  This feature is SO important and would help extend the reach of our LinkedIN posts, as many of our colleagues have large followings.  Please implement!

This is an extremely important feature that every other social publishing tool has had for months now - can this be implemented?

You should be able to do this it should be a mandatory feature! Seems bonkers that this is social media tool - and you can't be socialable and engage with your audience by mentioning them!

Please try and get to this ASAP! The change LinkedIn made is huge and the lack of this feature no renders the LI integration you already have a lot less valuable.

Looks like we still can't reference people's names when using @... when posting to Linkedin. Yet its possible when using the Linkedin platform separately! Please please please can we have this functionality asap? For Hubspot to be a true outbound marketing platform we need to be able to connect with our customers in this way, thanks

Great that it is now possible to mention @companies, but not people's names? I look forward to this.

This featue would be incredibly helpful. While it's good to be able to mention companies, being able to @ mention individuals would really enhance our ability to interact with our LinkedIn community.

Yes, this is an important feature to increase reach through LinkedIn!

This is really important for us! We always mention individuals when posting on LinkedIn and it is a pain having to edit the post directly on LinkedIn.

@MdeRada does your reach go down if you manually edit your post in LinkedIn afterward?

 @Nico_publico not necessarily but it is not very efficient having to edit a comment once it's posted. Besides, when we schedule posts this is not an option if it's out out of working hours.

I'd also like to be able to @mention individuals for twitter and facebook as well as LinkedIn.
