LinkedIn Share Button Code

UPDATE:  The "counter" does not seem to work with Wordpress's newest edition.  Hopefully they will fix that soon.  In the meantime, you can use the Wordpress Plugin:  LinkedIn Share Button.

Now there is an easy way for your tribe to share your blog posts or website pages on LinkedIn - via updates, and through groups:  The LinkedIn Share button.  (Actually, its been around since April - but in Beta mode through Wordpress).  Now anyone can use it!
You can find the code for vertical count, horizontal count and no count shares on LinkedIn's publishers page:

Here's the code for the vertical share as seen at the top of this post:


<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script><script type="in/share" data-counter="top"></script>


So start sharing your business content with your LinkedIn connections now!
