LinkedIn has been giving the users the option to write their views in articles and with a new programme called Collaboration Articles, LinkedIn has announced that it would start use AI to enhance its content. Collaborative Articles will employ AI-generated prompts to then contact individual users for their knowledge and input.

Collaborative Articles

As explained by LinkedIn:

“These articles begin as AI-powered conversation starters, developed with our editorial team. Then, using LinkedIn’s Skills Graph, we match each article with relevant member experts who can contribute their lessons, anecdotes, and advice based on their professional experience. And, that’s when the real magic happens: when professionals share real-life, specific advice by contributing their perspectives to the work questions we’re all facing every day. Because starting a conversation is harder than joining one, these collaborative articles make it easier for professionals to come together and add and improve ideas – which is how shared knowledge is created.”

Collaboration Articles will be shown in bold in the LinkedIn feed along with a notice indicating the number of LinkedIn contributors. There will then be a button allowing you to add your own opinion to the AI-written piece, along with the ability to see contributor contributions highlighted within the post.

LinkedIn is expecting that by doing this, more users will be able to increase the visibility of their knowledge and experience within the app, which will also enable them to obtain more connections and followers.

LinkedIn’s also adding a new Community Top Voice badge in key skill areas related to Collaborative Articles, which will provide extra incentive for professionals to contribute their advice and experience. These new badges will be valid for 60 days at a time, with members required to keep contributing to Collaborative Articles to keep that recognition.

This might be one of the AI updates coming to the app in the near future and we can all look forward to more.
