Using Emoji’s on LinkedIn

Emoji’s, literally meaning ‘picture character’ in Japanese are found everywhere these days from your friends Facebook and Twitter feeds through to large international advertising campaigns.

There always seems to be a place for these handy little images. Yet despite their popularity there are some people who ask “Can you use emoji’s on Linked in?”

Well, in short, yes you can.

If you’re also wondering how to use emoji’s on LinkedIn well that very much depends on the device you’re using. The Messaging functionality on LinkedIn ties in directly with your mobile device. As such you have access to the LinkedIn emoji set and these can be added to your messages as you would on any other messaging app.

Adding emoji’s to LinkedIn articles, comments and posts depends on the device you’re using. If you’re using a mobile device then you’ll have access to the devices set of emoji’s. So, you can add and use them as you would with any other communication from your mobile.
If you’re on a desktop computer, there is no built-in LinkedIn function for the usage of emoji’s or special characters on LinkedIn comments and articles, but all the various emoji functions on your device make it really easy. There are also any number of sites out there that have copy and paste sets of emoji’s than you can lift and shift straight in to the piece you’re writing.

Now, we’ve covered how to use emoji’s on LinkedIn It’s worth spending a little time on how is best to use them.
If you want a good example of emoji’s being used terrible, then go to a free email account that you own and take a look at your spam filter. Right there you’ll see many examples of how emoji’s can be used badly. The sea of overused emoji’s in the titles is a clear example of how not to use them.

It’s also important to remember that LinkedIn is a professional social media tool, and it shouldn’t be treated in the same way that you may use your own personal Snapchat or Instagram account. You wouldn’t go to LinkedIn and upload funny videos or status about your night out. You’d act professionally within LinkedIn, and the usage of emoji’s should be treated exactly the same.

In short, the usage of emoji’s should be considered and not overused. When you add emoji to LinkedIn articles and comments don’t go overboard. Adding line after line of emoji’s is only going to make your comment or post, look childish and unprofessional. Your post will certainly get a lot of attention, but you want your emoji’s to bring your post the right kind of attention.

I find that the basic theory when you add emoji to LinkedIn should be that one or two emoji’s will suffice. The odd emoji to highlight a point.

So, there you have it. There is no hard and fast rule of how to use emoji’s on LinkedIn but in the most part it is down to common sense, and what you think is appropriate. Think of emoji’s like coffee. One or two and everything can seem bright, colourful and vibrant. Too many, and you just get a headache.
