Every day I still see people using hashtags on LinkedIn. More often than not those are the same people who describe themselves as Marketing / Branding / Social Media experts. Really? Using hashtags on LinkedIn has been obsolete for nearly 2 years.
I recently asked one of these people why they still are using hashtags. Their response was “Well I schedule everything in Hootsuite for Facebook it pushes it to LinkedIn.” It is hard to take someone who has that response as a credible Marketing/ Branding / Social Media Expert.
You can make some simple tweaks to your process and set yourself apart.
