My thoughts and feedback on Uplift Live

UpLift Live is an in-person, LinkedIn-focused conference that took place for the first time on 21 March 2024 in Birmingham, UK.

With the demise of Creator mode, or the opening of creator mode to everyone (however you wish to view it!) imminent, it probably opens up the possibility of all LinkedIn™️ users having the opportunity to create their own newsletters.

So it seems a good time to have a new look at this feature so that you can decide whether you will be be going down that track.

That plus;

  • A new mysterious 'Who viewed your profile' filter.

  • Your comment doesn't comply with our policies!

  • AI enhancements drive an increase in LinkedIn™️ Premium subscriptions.

  • A sneaky way to get 3 months premium free.

  • How AI features are being assessed

  • Native AI post generation. Is it any good?

This month we will see Creator mode disappearing and with it, the obligation to have 'Follow' as the primary option on your profile so I thought it was worth revisiting the persistent question...Connect or Follow?

That plus;

  • New Recruiter & Learning tools that assist retention but might also have the the polar opposite impact!

  • New Privacy setting

  • New option for profile custom CTA button

  • Feedback from last week regarding the homepage feed

  • Post of the week.

Has your feed changed recently? Are you seeing posts from people who are unfamiliar to you?

This may be due to LinkedIn™️ deciding that they know what 'quality' content looks like.

Not are clearly not in a position to decide this for yourself!

This week I discuss what we can do to fix this.

That plus;

  • AI comments are getting very annoying!

  • The real reason customised invitations are being limited and a cool workaround.

  • A very sneaky change to your data privacy settings

  • Saved posts feature urgently needs updating

  • My take on Public groups

  • Profile verification favours men!
