Post Video, Including Posting to YouTube

Learn how to post videos to your profiles, including YouTube. We discuss doing the SEO for YouTube. And, we quickly review the benefits of using SMclicks regarding the Reports, Inbox, and Search feature related to YouTube.

LinkedIn: At this time, the LinkedIn API does not allow software applications to post video - they must be posted manually. However, recent changes allow users to post video to LinkedIn Company Pages.

API Changes: In 2018, social media companies became more conservative and changed their APIs in light of events such as those surrounding Cambridge Analytica and social media CEOs being grilled by congress. As a result, social media apps are no longer allowed to post to LinkedIn Groups and Facebook personal profiles. If history repeats itself, we would expect this to change again in the future.

New SMclicks Features:

  • Post Video to LinkedIn Company Pages: Effective November 2018, users can post video to LinkedIn Company Pages. The method to post video to LinkedIn Company Pages is the same as posting video to other social channels.
