LinkedIn's FREE status update service

If you'd like to make the most of idibu's FREE LinkedIn 'status updates', then just connect your account by following the simple instructions below.

This service allows you to post free status updates to your personal wall, and providing the user is an admin on the Company page, to the Company's wall too. 

Please note that LinkedIn Jobs (or Linkedin Recruiter) is a different service, for which you will need to purchase jobs slots from Linkedin directly.. more info here

If you use our new 'idibu v3' platform and wish to connect your account, please follow this article instead


To set up the FREE status updates:

1. Log into idibu as the administrator

2. Go to Job Boards & Quotas > LinkedIn > Settings - Make sure you are subscribed to LinkedIn. If not, you can see how to set up a new subscription here

3. To open up all user profiles, click 'Extended Logins' and 'Show Users':

4. Click on 'Connect an account' next to the user you wish to connect:

5. Enter the user's LinkedIn credentials and allow the idibu app's permissions:

6. Save Settings

Now, when posting to LinkedIn you'll see the option to post to your personal wall (and company too if the connected user has permissions):

That's it! You're now able to post to LinkedIn ;)
