Ever stumbled upon an awesome LinkedIn post and thought, "Wow, my network NEEDS to see this!"?

That's where the handy LinkedIn "Repost" feature comes into play!

This nifty feature lets you share the content that hits just right, allowing you to layer in your own thoughts, humor, and perspective.

It's a fantastic way to showcase what matters to you and hint at your personal or professional taste to others.

Ready to master the art of reposting?

Let's get into the how-to and make sure your repost game is top-notch!

LinkedIn’s Native “Repost” Feature

Let's dive into making the most of this repost feature:

1. Choosing How to Repost

When it comes to LinkedIn “Repost” options you have 2 choices:

A. Repost with Your Thoughts

Repost with thoughts enables you to add a personal touch to shared content. This will be seen as a totally new post from LinkedIn.

Simply select "Repost with your thoughts" and enter your comments or mention relevant profiles with "@" to make your repost stand out. 


B. Direct Repost

You can also use direct repost when the content speaks for itself.

Choose "Repost" to share the original post without additional comments. A confirmation message will confirm the successful repost. 


This is a way to boost an original post. All impressions and engagement go to the original post.

2. Customizing Your Repost

When reposting with your thoughts, a popup allows you to add your unique perspective, enhancing the post's value to your network.

  • Click on “Repost
  • Choose “Repost with your thoughts
  • Write your message.
  • Click on “Post”.

Furthermore, the repost feature allows for customization of audience visibility.

  • After selecting "Repost," access the visibility settings by clicking the down arrow next to your name. 
  • Here, you can specify whether your repost is viewable by "Anyone" or "Connections only," ensuring the content reaches your intended audience.

3. Reposting a Repost

When you repost a repost, your commentary is positioned at the forefront, creating a cascade of discussions that can be traced back to the initial post.

This feature enables a multi-layered dialogue, enriching the conversation.

By clicking on any tier of comments, you can navigate through the sequence of reposts, ultimately reaching the original content for complete understanding.


4. Sharing in Private Messages

To share content privately, simply click "Send" on the desired post and choose your recipients.

This allows for direct sharing of insightful content, with the option to include a personal message for a more customized approach.


5. Viewing Repost Interactions

To gauge the impact of your content, click on the numerical indicators of reposts or comments associated with a post.

This action reveals the interactions, offering a window into how your network engages with and responds to the shared content.


6. What Else You Need to Know About LinkedIn's Repost Feature?

👉 Email Notifications—Depending on settings, your reposts may be shared with your connections via email, extending your content's reach.

👉 Inclusion of Original Commentary—Reposting content automatically includes the original poster's commentary, maintaining the context of shared posts.

👉 Privacy Restrictions—Content set to "connections only" cannot be further reposted, respecting the original poster’s privacy settings.

👉 Group Post Restrictions—Content from LinkedIn Groups remains exclusive and cannot be reposted, preserving the group's privacy and integrity.


Benefits of Reposting on LinkedIn

Reposting on LinkedIn is like hitting the share button on something awesome—it's a simple way to keep the good vibes rolling.

Here’s why it’s a game-changer:
