Publicize currently only connects to your personal account; we should allow connections to Company Pages (http://marketing.linkedin.com/company-pages/) as well.

Noting that is also tracked internally for our team as well. Not a current priority however.

Any progress on this? It's a shame that you can only post to personal accounts.

I don't think LinkedIn has developed any API allowing automatic posting to
company pages yet, but when they do we'll be sure to consider adding the
option to Publicize.

Thanks for that, I didn't know about it. I'll let our team in charge of Publicize know.

The landscape for LinkedIn's API has changed a lot in the past 2 years, but sharing to a Company page is possible (and appears it will remain so for the foreseeable future). Here are direct links to some relevant sections in the (REST) API docs:

Please add this feature asap. I am also a PHP developer but I never contributed to any project online. I am ready to help if anyone can guide me.

aensley commented Apr 6, 2015

@divyadeepsawhney, you could do a pull request on the publicize module. Be sure to check out Jetpack's project-specific instructions too. I'd do it myself (as I badly need this feature as well), but I simply have no time right now.

@aensley It seems like a lot of the logic for sharing posts is within a web service call (https://public-api.wordpress.com/connect/?jetpack=publicize). I don't think adding the LinkedIn Company page logic to https://github.com/Automattic/jetpack/tree/master/modules/publicize makes sense, unless I'm misunderstanding something?

Correct, an addition like this would require an update on the WP.com side not only in Jetpack.

Thing is, it is not clear why this is such a big problem for you when others have had plugins out doing this for a very long time. I think this is probably the main mystery :).

Yes, LinkedIn changed and changes things but these plugins keep up so?

@dac2020 George described some of our biggest challenges in the comment I highlighted above, and replied to your questions in the comments that followed.
Here are the follow-up comments:

I see you've also made a few suggestions and shared how you do it at your company. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

Now the ball is in our court: we'll need to make a decision, solve those challenges, find a solution that works for existing and new users alike, without breaking anyone's connection if possible, and we'll need to prioritize those changes alongside the other things we also have to work on.

That will happen, but we don't have an ETA yet. When we do, we will let everyone know, we promise! Until then, there really isn't much you can do to help. Some folks have suggested alternatives above (thank you all for that), so I can only point you towards their recommendations if you need this feature today. If those solutions aren't what you're looking for, I'm afraid I can only recommend that you wait a little longer.

Thank you.

That indeed might not be a bad idea actually, like for example if an existent connection is laid with Linkedin then keep using the old connection and opt a message saying they could update their connection to the new one. For new members the old connection would just not be displayed/or be able to be used.

Something like that might indeed work, but I do understand the challenges that this requires!

@aensley Things haven't changed much since my last comment:
#259 (comment)

I'll now be closing comments on this issue; I believe we’ve all already discussed about possible solutions and issues around this feature; newer comments won’t add much to the conversation at this point. We’ll update the issue as soon as we make progress on this.

Thank you.
