If you have not seen a change on your profile yet, it’s coming! LinkedIn is rolling out a new Featured Section under your About Section. You can showcase your outstanding work, whether it is an article, image, link, or document. LinkedIn wants you to share whatever you are most proud of.
Your Activity Section will only go back to the content you have developed in the past 45 days, whether it is an original article, a post, or any likes or comments you have made on others’ posts. You will now find your Activity Section just below your Featured Section.
Make sure you check your profile settings so that if you want your Featured Section item to be seen, it will be seen. It is not something that will be discovered through a search.
If you want to reorder your featured content, you can do that too by clicking on the pen in that section and dragging and dropping the hamburger stack at the top right of the content you want to move. You can add new content by clicking on the + sign.
If you want to feature some of the content you are posting in your feed, you can click on the …More icon at the top right to be able to add it.
