  • Type the @ symbol when mentioning a person or business. A drop-down menu should display immediately. People in and out of your social circle could be on the list.

It’s that straightforward. It’s also important to note that LinkedIn users can disable mentions and tags. Therefore, if the person you wish to mention in your post or remark does not appear in the drop-down menu, it indicates that they have disabled this option in the Visibility section of Settings & Privacy.

  • You’ve got a question that could be solved by a contact of yours. If applicable, you might also address the request to a person who you know has the answer but who has not yet responded to you. Users you tag will be alerted to your post and given the opportunity to weigh in on the topic.
