In a comment on a LinkedIn Article 4. In a comment on a LinkedIn Event 5. In a LinkedIn Message (for reference only, they do not get a notification they were tagged). 6.

  4. 4. Burriss Consulting, Inc - LinkedIn Training and Coaching www.burrissconsulting.com Best Practices for Mentioning LinkedIn Members Part 1 1. Use the first word of their company name to tag popular names like “James Smith". 2. Type the name in slowly after the “@“ symbol. Sometimes you do not need to type the entire name to find the person you are trying to tag. 3. When tagging a company try using their LinkedIn URL Handle if the Company name is not working. 4. Don’t tag obsessively. LinkedIn frowns on users who tag too many people in a post or comment. 5. I recommend limiting your tagging to <10 LinkedIn Members and/or companies. 6. You can backspace out the last name and/or former name when tagging.
  5. 5. Burriss Consulting, Inc - LinkedIn Training and Coaching www.burrissconsulting.com Best Practices for Mentioning LinkedIn Members Part 2 1. You tag someone with their entire name, first name or last name. 2. You can edit a post or comment and adjust the tag after posting. 3. For a cleaner tag, backspace out all of the certs some people put on the end of their names, (John Smith CPA, ABC, XYZ, PMP, CIM, Moo) 4. When tagging a LinkedIn Member ask yourself, will they appreciate I mentioned them. If not, don’t. 5. If you get mentioned in a post or comment, you can remove the mention.
