Linked mentions of individuals or organizations in LinkedIn posts

Right now in HootSuite it's possible to mention a profile in Twitter or Facebook posts. However, it's not possible in LinkedIn posts. Are there any plans to add that feature? Thanks!

  • For B2B, the inability to do LinkedIn @mentions in Hootsuite is a huge drawback. Social platforms are for conversations, information sharing, etc. Think of the missed possibilities, e.g., can't mention of a presenter in an industry presentation, an author of a publication, a colleague, etc. Having to go to the Company LinkedIn page to do it bypasses Hootsuite and eliminates the possibility of scheduling the post, so  social media managers must "babysit" to do live in and around all of the other activities. Please add this functionality.   
  • I can see people asking for this functionality back in 2015. I echo what Bioclinicasome says - this is a major drawback and has led to my having to use LinkedIn directly and ditching Hootsuite. Seems like a no-brainer for B2B audiences so I'm not sure why this hasn't been implemented already. 
  • I can only echo the above, this lack of functionality is a large drawback for our organisation.
  • Is this going to be progressed? Can't understand why LinkedIn has been excluded from this functionality. Scheduling posts for Linkedin are now no longer possible from Hootsuite which is proving a real drain on team resource.
  • It's hard to believe this isn't an option already... it's possible to tag on the LinkedIn site and for Twitter/Facebook via Hootsuite.  PLEASE implement!!!
  • I agree this is a major drawback. It would be very helpful when this functionality is also implemented for LinkedIn. It's already possible within LinkedIn, so it should be possible via Hootsuite.
