Please don’t tag multiple people in a linked in post because you think it will help increase likes.

One big no-no to do on LinkedIn when creating posts is to tag a lot of people in the post who are not related to it. People do it every day.

People do this because they think that it will help more people see the post and therefore like it. But I think it does the opposite. It can annoy and confuse your connections.

When people do this to me, I get annoyed, untag myself and sometimes I unfollow that person. If they do it often I have removed them.

Every connection you have is very valuable on LinkedIn, so treat them that way. This is the equivalent of LinkedIn spamming, and it defeats your social media goals.

You can easily untag yourself from a post like this so you don’t get the annoying notifications related to the post.

Focus more about creating quality content that will resonate with your network and then send the post to certain individuals with a personal note saying why do you think they would benefit from reading it.

There are much more strategic ways to have your content noticed like posting at the right time, setting up a pod, posting to groups and using the right hashtags.
