August 1, 2022 | By Divya Agrawal | No Comments

Is the pressure to be vulnerable and unique holding you back from self-marketing on LinkedIn? I get it. Perhaps you’ve just arrived on the platform, or you’ve been lurking for quite some time now. Finally, when you have mustered up the courage to start posting on LinkedIn, you see the platform shift.

LinkedIn has recently over-embraced the idea of vulnerability and uniqueness in a preachy way.

It’s good to be genuine on LinkedIn. However, with the pressure to be vulnerable on the platform these days, talking about the business doesn’t seem enough.

Uniqueness integrates into the need to be ‘authoritative,’ without which, we are told, our business would fail. And so we trap ourselves in the idea of needing to portray uniqueness and jeopardize our willingness to post anything at all.
