Important to Know!
Remember that tagging LinkedIn pages is only possible in the web version of Buffer. It’s not supported on the mobile app now, but shortly, it will be accomplished, as mentioned on the Buffer website.
Hence if you schedule a post on the Buffer mobile app containing a LinkedIn tag, the uploaded post will lose this LinkedIn mention.
How to mention LinkedIn pages in posts scheduled on Buffer?
If you want to tag a LinkedIn page in any post scheduled by Buffer, simply copy the LinkedIn URL of that page and then paste it into the post.
For instance, to tag the LinkedIn page of CUF🚀 in a post, its LinkedIn URL should be copied and pasted into the post.
While mentioning other networks like Facebook, just by typing @ plus the Page Name, the matching results are demonstrated, and you can choose the desired one. No need to mention the page name completely; when you type only its first letters, all matching Facebook pages will be shown.
@ typing is not supported for tagging LinkedIn URLs in Buffer. If it becomes possible, that would be perfect.
To make the most of the LinkedIn social network, only entrusting the work to the employees to manage the tasks manually is not helpful.
