How to create Social media buttons for LinkedIn. LinkedIn (/lɪŋktˈɪn/) is an American business and employment-oriented online service that operates via websites and mobile apps. Launched on May 5, 2003, the platform is mainly used for professional networking, and allows job seekers to post their CVs and employers to post jobs. As of 2015, most of the company’s revenue came from selling access to information about its members to recruiters and sales professionals. Since December 2016, it has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Microsoft. As of February 2021, LinkedIn had 740 million registered members from 150 countries.
LinkedIn allows members (both workers and employers) to create profiles and “connect” to each other in an online social network which may represent real-world professional relationships. Members can invite anyone (whether an existing member or not) to become a “connection”
The most common types of social media buttons offer share, like, and follow functions. Each serves a different purpose, and the ways they work vary somewhat among networks. But each type generally does what its name implies:
Share buttons allow users to share your content with friends and followers
Like buttons allow them to give your content a virtual thumbs-up
Follow buttons will subscribe them to your updates on the specified social network

How it works
The LinkedIn share button combines the functions of the Facebook share and send buttons. It allows users to share your content on LinkedIn in several ways—on their public profile, with their contacts, in a group, or in a message to one or more individuals. Clicking on the button opens a pop-up window that provides the option to add a personal message to the post, along with sharing options.
As with the LinkedIn share button, you can choose to showcase the number of people who already follow your company on LinkedIn as part of the follow button.
But there is also a more interesting option to explore. The company profile plugin functions in much the same way as a simple follow button but provides more information about your company with the simple hover of a mouse.
