Share Page on LinkedIn

Share on LinkedIn

A new action for adding a Share on LinkedIn, link to your website or blog allowing your users to share your content with their LinkedIn connections or networks. This gives your content legs: one user visits your site and can notify literally tens, hundreds, or thousands of others. Works great for news sites, blogs, and other content–rich sites. See here for the LinkedIn description of this functionality.
