Can anyone suggest a social media plug-in that works well with LinkedIn?

I have been using Social Warfare for a couple of years. All the buttons work well except the one for LinkedIn, which worked well earlier.

The problem with that is that LinkedIn is my favorite and most productive social medium.

To make a connection with LinkedIn, I have spent lots of time refreshing the LinkedIn feed page to get a connection. Now, it seems that even this doesn't work.

So, I am looking for a plug-in suggestion from someone who is quickly and easily connecting with LinkedIn by the LinkedIn button.

I have communicated with Social Warfare and got the answer that always never helps - "It seems okay on our end".

All my other connections to LinkedIn work very well - messaging, building connections, posting directly to LinkedIn, etc. All the other buttons work quickly and easily - Facebook, etc.

It seems impossible to talk with anyone at LinkedIn.

I know there are other social plug-ins available. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Following with interest. I have the same problem with LinkedIn.I use add to any share, and it was working great with LinkedIn, but now it doesn’t.

Zoopie, my share to LinkedIn by Social Warfare worked well yesterday. I only had to refresh my LinkedIn feed page 2 times. I can live with that. But I am thinking that LinkedIn prefers posts to be written directly on their site to posts being shared. If so, that would be a real problem, since posting to Google is much more important. See Suzie Q's comments. I may end up changing my plug in. I just hope LinkedIn is not making all plug ins ineffective. We shall see.

It’s not a huge problem, can do it manually. But the time is a pain. I will look at mediavine ( thanks to Susie Q.) If they cancel all plug in links, that would be a pain.
There has been a lot of work going on at LinkedIn lately. A lot of groups are linking up directly b2b. Time will tell…
Cheers

Stephen, another plug in that I tried did not give me a share to LinkedIn. The problem doesn't seem to be with the plug-ins, but with access to LinkedIn by share buttons of any kind. Can you speak of any good way to share posts to LinkedIn by share buttons?

Thanks, Richard

I’m still looking as well.

Hi Richard,
I personally use "Grow Social by Mediavine", but there are many out there for sure.
It doesn't hurt your website to try different ones to test them out, or use your free subdomain to create a test site to play on. That's what I do, haha.
Good luck,
Suzanne

Suzanne, do you share to LinkedIn by a button

Thanks, Suzanne!

Suzanne, apparently the LinkedIn issue is not related to plug-ins, at least I don't think it is. I changed to another plug-n, but got the same problem with LinkedIn. Does you plug-in share to LinkedIn, quickly like shares to the other social media?

Thank you!

Well, there you go... I didn't realize until you said something and I checked. And sure enough, it's not working...
I sent in a support email to see what's up. Hopefully, I hear soon and can let you know.

Suzanne, this seems to be a LinkedIn issue
