This could be nothing. But then again…
As you can see, Weiner agreed with the criticism, and has referred the query to LinkedIn’s Product Management team. Which could mean we’ll soon see new types of LinkedIn Reactions more aligned to the latest news.
But, as Abedin notes, none of those really fits on COVID-19 stories, which currently dominate LinkedIn’s feed. As such, LinkedIn could look to add in a new Reaction type, which is what Facebook did with its ‘Care’ Reaction, which it launched last month.
Maybe, given the usage of Reactions, it makes sense for LinkedIn to add more options in this respect – and given that LinkedIn only has five Reactions currently, it has room to add in more without causing much impact.
Or it could be nothing. We’ll keep you updated on any developments.
