Last fall, LinkedIn introduced a new type of page to their platform – university pages. These pages were released in conjunction with lowering the minimum age for membership on the platform from 18 to 14. LinkedIn’s goal with lowering the minimum age and introducing university pages was to create an opportunity for high school students to research colleges and universities on the platform.
Since that time, Missouri State University has managed its university page and used it to share information with prospective and current students.
Recently, LinkedIn university pages received a new function – recommendations. With this new feature, students and alumni of Missouri State may write recommendations for the University that will automatically display on the page’s home feed and the recommendations tab. The recommendations tab is nested in the menu bar located at the top of the page.
LinkedIn identifies students and alumni of the University by the education section in their personal profiles. Any individual who indicates that they attended Missouri State University automatically follows Missouri State’s university page and is eligible to post a recommendation.
