#1 LinkedIn Rule: Your Daily Success Tip
If you wouldn’t put it on your resume, don’t post it on LinkedIn.
LinkedIn is a great social media platform for business. It is not the place for memes, hookups, political or religious rants, or kid and vacation pictures — unless you do these things for a living. If you are in business and you work with other humans, you need a professional presence on LinkedIn. If you don’t have one, start one now. If you do have one, take a look at all you have posted the last few weeks. Does it support your personal brand? Remember my golden rule: Never post about religion, politics, or cats — you will alienate half your fans.
Personal branding is the practice of people marketing themselves and their careers as brands. While previous self-help management techniques were about self-improvement, the personal-branding concept suggests instead that success comes from self-packaging. — Google/Wikipedia
