LinkedIn is rolling out a new feature that will allow users to see which newsletters other users have subscribed to.
Beginning February 11, someone who visits your profile will be able to see all of your LinkedIn newsletter subscriptions.
In a message sent to users, LinkedIn says it’s making this change to help people discover new content and stay current with industry trends.
This change of making all newsletter subscriptions public on LinkedIn is mandatory and users cannot opt out, even if they prefer to keep their subscriptions private.
The only way to prevent the public visibility of a newsletter subscription on LinkedIn is to unsubscribe.
Via screenshot shared by on Twitter Matt Navarrethe message from LinkedIn regarding newsletter subscriptions reads:
“We’ve heard from members like vou that newsletters on Linkedin are a great way to get new insights and ideas about work issues that matter to them. We’ve also heard that members are looking for better ways to discover even more
Newsletters relevant to them.
To support this discovery, we make newsletter subscriptions visible to others, including in profiles. Starting February 11, 2023, you’ll be able to see which newsletters members are finding value in, just like you’ll be able to see your common interests, Pages, and groups. With this increased visibility, there will be new opportunities for members to get inspired, collaborate and gain knowledge to further their careers.
This change will apply to all your current and future subscriptions unless you cancel. If you prefer not to show your newsletter subscriptions to other members, you can view your complete newsletter list by visiting the “My Network” page at the bottom of this email. Just unsubscribe from the newsletters you don’t want to publish.”
Seeing which newsletters your colleagues are subscribed to can be a great way to get a glimpse of the most relevant content in your field.
It can be helpful for job seekers to keep up to date with popular newsletters to keep up to date with industry trends and job openings.
For businesses and content creators, knowing which newsletters are popular with a specific group of people can help develop new marketing plans to target them.
LinkedIn’s new feature that lets users see which newsletters other users are subscribed to is a welcome addition to the platform. It will allow users to discover new content and can help increase subscriptions for newsletter publishers.
