Hello, I'm Wes, and I'll be assisting you today.

There are two best options with LinkedIn.

Use Share an Update when you want to share a short message to all your contacts including links.

Ask Your Own Networking Question

The other option is to Publish a Post.

This is perfect when you want to write a paragraph or more and post the link to your video as well. This enables you to share more detail and "tell a story"

If you just want to say "Hey, check out this new video I made" use the share an update feature.

does the share and update give me a little space to write about what the update is and how they can view the video

The Publish a Post is for more detailed information.

Either one will let your 500+ contacts see what you post online.

can tell how/where to find BOTH options

Not really, the share an update only allows about 3-4 sentences.

Sure. Both are on your main profile page.

Here are some great examples of each:

I will remain online in this chat window if you need additional help so I can assist further.
Please rate my answer based on your satisfaction and help received.
Thank you.

cant find where to write up short update / invite

To share an update, login to Linkedin.com and on the main page below your profile image is a box called "Share an Update"

Click on that box and you will be able to write your message.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago

and where do I get the link to share the video posted on my profile

Go to the page where your video is and right-click on the video to copy the URL.

Then paste that URL into the message your are writing and LinkedIn will pull the video into your message automatically.

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago

ok --still cant find share an update ???

Click Home on the main menu once logged into LinkedIn.

Let me know if you see your profile image.

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago

yes

You should see some buttons below the image to "Share an Update"

Be sure that you are logged in or you will not see the buttons.

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago

I logged in....I see my name....but there is nothing below it

Can you send me a screenshot of the page?

You might also see "What's on your mind?" instead depending on your account type.

Also, some Ad blocking software may hide the button.

The button is supposed to look like this:

http://thelinkedinman.com/share-update-linkedin/

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago

right clicking on the video isn't getting me the URL

When moving a mouse over the video, look for any buttons that may pop up to show the URL. If there is a YouTube button, click on it and it will take you to YouTube where you can copy the URL.
Otherwise, you can post the link to the profile page where your video is.
If that does not work, then posting the video to YouTube and copy the URL would be the best option.
