How do you tag someone on LinkedIn who is not a connection?

. 2 min read

Tagging someone on LinkedIn who is not a connection can help you expand your network, engage with a wider audience, and increase visibility for your posts.

On Circleboom, you can easily tag someone who is not a connection on LinkedIn.

You should follow these steps:

  1. Begin typing your post.
  2. When you reach the point of tag, type the "@" symbol.
  3. Start typing the individual’s name.
  4. A dropdown list will appear; select the correct person from this list.
  5. Their name will be hyperlinked in your post, notifying them of the mention.

You can utilize LinkedIn to tag someone on your posts.

Here's how you can tag someone who isn't connected to you on LinkedIn:

  1. Start Creating a Post or Comment: Whether you are writing a new post or commenting on someone else's content, begin typing your message in the appropriate text box.
  2. Type the '@' Symbol: Follow this by starting to type the person's name. LinkedIn will automatically begin suggesting names based on the characters you enter.
  3. Select the Person from the Dropdown Menu: As you type, LinkedIn will suggest people from your connections first. If the person you want to tag is not a direct connection, continue typing their full name. LinkedIn may still be able to find them if their privacy settings allow them to be tagged by non-connections.
  4. Check Tagging Permissions: It's important to note that if you still can't tag the person, they might have their privacy settings configured to prevent non-connections from tagging them. In this case, you won't be able to tag them unless you connect first and they accept your connection request.
  5. Finish Your Post or Comment: Once you select the person’s name, it will be highlighted as a hyperlink in your post or comment, indicating that the tag was successful. Complete your message and post it.
  6. Engagement Considerations: When you tag someone, it can notify them and potentially bring them into the conversation, which can be beneficial for networking and visibility. However, use tagging judiciously to ensure that it remains relevant and professional and is not perceived as spammy.

Tagging on LinkedIn is a powerful tool for networking and enhancing your content's reach. Just be sure to maintain professionalism and relevance in your interactions, especially when tagging someone who isn't a direct connection.

Wrapping Up

Tagging someone on LinkedIn who is not a direct connection can significantly enhance your networking efforts, engage a broader audience, and boost the visibility of your posts. Using Circleboom, tagging becomes an easy and seamless process, allowing you to mention and notify individuals beyond your immediate network.

By following simple steps—starting your post, typing the "@" symbol, entering the individual's name, and selecting from the dropdown list—you can effectively include and notify non-connections in your LinkedIn posts. Remember to be mindful of tagging permissions, as some users may have privacy settings that prevent non-connections from tagging them.

Utilizing LinkedIn’s tagging feature strategically can lead to meaningful interactions and expand your professional reach. Just ensure that your tags are relevant and professional to avoid appearing spammy. When used thoughtfully, tagging can be a powerful tool to enhance your content's engagement and broaden your network on LinkedIn.
