“Hey everyone I have a new article,” she said

But what she forgot to do was add it to her Publications section on LinkedIn, where she already has a few older ones but in reverse chronological order: an older one is atop a newer one. I gently reminded her to post the newest article.

And while I am on that topic:

LI_Publications

So many people forget to re-arrange the items in the Publications section so the most recent entry shows at the top. Yes, the top, the most noticeable location.

I am not quite sure I understand LinkedIn’s logic behind its default of putting the most recent article at the bottom of the section.

So reader, take action!

You should re-sort these Publication items as I show to the left by clicking the 4 headed arrow for this entry and holding your mouse button down, dragging it to the top of the section. Nuisance, indeed, but required: in today’s attention-deficit world, don’t make a reader hunt for your latest and best piece of work. Make it easy for them to find it.

Maybe LinkedIn is reading this blog piece and will take my advice about the default order of posted articles in the Publications section. Hint, hint!
