LinkedIn reveals its prime votes of 2020

The professional network builds the list by examining all sharing activity on its platform from October 1, 2019 to September 30, 2020, using a combination of quantitative and qualitative signals, including engagement (comments, reactions and approvals), follower growth and Post cadence.

The editors of LinkedIn News refine and curate the list by examining candidates' work on factors such as conversation, insight, and timeliness, as well as trying to provide and receive help rather than just promoting and reflecting on the world we are in live and work today.

Current LinkedIn and Microsoft employees are not eligible, nor are members paid by the professional network to participate in branding campaigns or courses.
