LinkedIn Tips for Tagging Photos

Anyone who has a Facebook or Instagram account should be familiar with photo tagging by now. The process of tagging another user in a LinkedIn photo is pretty simple. Click anywhere on a photo and start typing the name of the person you want to tag. The individual will, of course, get notified that they were tagged in a photo.

We’re not recommending that you abuse the feature and start tagging prospects in photos that are not relevant to them, but you could tag someone to create awareness. Here are a few other examples of when you may want to tag someone in a photo.

LinkedIn has also given us the option to add alt text to images. In case you’re not familiar with alt text (a.k.a. alt attributes or alt descriptions), it’s used for accessibility and search engine optimization. Visually impaired users use alt text to understand what an image is about, so you’ll want to use it to describe the photo. In Mario’s example, he used the webinar name and company name.

Can you think of any creative ways to use LinkedIn’s feature for tagging photos to connect with prospective buyers? Let us know in the comments below.

  1. So I tag someone with a photo that I post. What happens? Does this person receive some type of notice to go look at the photo? You ask a good question……….how do I plan to use it…….and I am not sure of the mechanics /process to give you an answer.
