As you can see in this sequence, LinkedIn Stories, which the company confirmed were coming back in February, function pretty much the same as they do on Facebook and Instagram, with a Stories bar along the top of the main feed, and various stickers and tools available to decorate your Stories frames.
When you first access a LinkedIn Story, you're prompted to check your privacy settings for Stories viewing.
That aligns with LinkedIn's regular capacity for users to see who's viewed their profile - if you don't want people to see that you've checked out their LinkedIn story, you can switch this off via your Story settings.
LinkedIn provides three alternatives on this front - when you view a Story, the Story creator will see either:
- Your name and headline
- Private profile characteristics (title and most recent education institution or company, if applicable)
- Private mode (anonymous)
So you do have the option to view LinkedIn Stories anonymously if that better suits.
The Stories creation stream is fairly straightforward - take a photo/video, add stickers and text, then publish.
