LinkedIn has finally made the announcement about adding a native carousel post option to their platform. They were the only major platform that were missing a native carousel post format, but now they have it. Earlier, you had to convert your images to a PDF, and take all sorts of indirect ways to get a carousel post on LinkedIn. But now, very soon, you need not do that. You can directly select multiple images or multiple videos or a combination of both, and you can create a carousel post on LinkedIn. A carousel post is simply a post where you have multiple images that you swipe through. The neat thing about this format with LinkedIn, especially videos, is each video in your carousel has a little per progress bar, micro-progress-bar under it. So if you see the video that we have attached that they have released as a sample, each video has a little progress bar at the bottom. Just make note of that. It’s a neat improvement to the design.
