LinkedIn Creator Mode : Retired February 2024

LinkedIn Creator Mode Retired

LinkedIn Announcement: 1st February 2024

Two years ago we launched creator mode so members could unlock access to more sharing tools, analytics, and set up their profile to show their audience what they post about on LinkedIn. Since then, more than 18 million people have turned on the setting and we love seeing how it has helped our members take their content to the next level.

We’ve also gotten great feedback from this community — and we’re eager to bring the best of creator mode to more of LinkedIn’s members. In the coming months we’ll be opening up creator tool access to all members, investing in the tools you’ve told us work best, and removing the need to toggle creator mode on & off.

What does this mean for you? You will still have access to the same tools and analytics, however, we are removing the creator mode on/off switch in the Resources section of your profile.

Here is what you should expect to see in the coming months:

  • February 2024 
    • Profile hashtags will be removed to simplify the introduction section of your profile.
  • March 2024
    • The creator mode on/off switch will be removed from the Resources section of your profile.
    • Your About section will move to the top of your profile so that people can easily grasp your professional story. 
    • You will have the option to choose Follow or Connect as the main CTA on your profile— your CTA will remain Follow unless you update it

Remember, even with these changes, you will still have access to the tools and analytics you had with creator mode. Thank you for being a part of our community— we can’t wait to see what you share next on LinkedIn.
