If you’ve been hesitant about posting images and videos to your LinkedIn account, this guide will help you feel more confident in uploading multimedia to LinkedIn.

Even though LinkedIn is not as much of a photo-sharing app as Instagram, you can still use all of the image options to create content that helps tell your brand story. We all know that users eyes gravitate towards pictures and videos.

Personal Profile Images

Despite of the fact that images are not the main focus on LinkedIn, they are a fundamental pillar to give credibility, branding, and professionalism to your brand.

Not adding images in this section can hurt you, since LinkedIn will select a default image in place. If your account doesn’t have a profile picture or background image, this can deter users and affect your account validity.

Thanks to this photo, people and businesses can put a face to your work.
