LinkedIn finally gets around to launching its own version of Stories



Hey, LinkedIn, what took you so long? The social network aimed primarily at professionals has finally heard about Stories, a feature started by Snapchat and copied by pretty much every other social media service since. And yes, that now includes LinkedIn.




It’s currently being tested for U.S.-based students and recent graduates using the LinkedIn app, hence the name: “Student Voices.”


The feature lets you post short videos — but not photos — as a collection for others to enjoy. The post vanishes after seven days, though can still be viewed by visiting the user’s Recent Activity section, accessible via their profile.
