Big Changes Coming to LinkedIn Stories!
After almost an entire year in the wild, LinkedIn is pulling its Stories feature and sending it back to the shop for upgrades. If you’re not familiar, Stories are LinkedIn’s way of allowing its users to share videos and images for a specified amount of time (usually 24 hours) before they disappear.

I reviewed Stories last year when LinkedIn first introduced them and it seems that some of my concerns were shared by others who provided feedback to LinkedIn, and now they are pulling the feature at the end of September. Check out this notice that I received in my inbox this morning from the LinkedIn Stories Team.
