How to Comment on LinkedIn Posts as Your Company.

Raise your hand if you love LinkedIn!

{my hand is raised}

As much as I love LinkedIn, there are a handful of features I wish it had, such as an easy toggle between commenting as a personal account and a business/company account. I don’t find this feature in particular to be a super complicated addition. I mean, Facebook has this option…

but anyways…

LinkedIn {as of this moment} doesn’t have an easy way to toggle between commenting as a personal page and a business or a company page.

But!

There is a workaround I discovered:

Open 3 tabs: ⁣ ⁣

  1.  Your LinkedIn newsfeed ⁣
  2. Your biz page that you are an admin of ⁣
  3. A blank tab ⁣ ⁣

Then follow these directions:

  • Find a post you want to comment on as you’re brand or biz.
  • Click on the 3 dots and choose ‘copy link to post.’ ⁣ ⁣ 
  • Paste the link in the blank URL tab ⁣ ⁣ Go to your biz page and copy the page ID string of numbers.⁣ ⁣
  • Go to notepad or word and type: /?actorCompanyId= ⁣ ⁣ At the end of the = add your company page ID digits and copy the string. ⁣ ⁣(Please note that the spelling of the thread has to be just as listed above or it won’t work).
  • Go back to the blank URL tab that has the URL of the post and add /?actorCompanyId=123456 (your company page digits) and hit enter.⁣ ⁣

Boom⁣ !

You’ll see the post and you’ll see your biz page as the icon and you can comment on the post as your brand or biz! ⁣ ⁣

I don’t know why ☹️ this isn’t an easier function on LinkedIn but hey – we have it sorted out.⁣ ⁣

Let me know if you try this workaround!⁣ ⁣
