LinkedIn is shutting down ‘Stories’ from its platform

San Francisco: Professional networking platform LinkedIn has announced that it is removing ‘Stories’ from its platform.

LinkedIn announced the feature ‘Stories’ – a feature well known for letting Snapchat and Instagram users share content that disappears after 24 hours – in 2020.

“We introduced Stories last year as a fun and casual way to share quick video updates. We’ve learned a lot,” Liz Lee, senior director of products at LinkedIn, said in a post Tuesday.

“Now, we’re taking those lessons to develop the Stories format at LinkedIn into a redesigned video experience that’s even richer and more conversational,” Lee said.

Lee noted that the company intends to adopt the creative tools of mixed media and Stories in a uniform manner across the platform, working to more tightly integrate it with the professional identity of the user.

As part of this change, the company will remove the existing Stories experience by the end of September.

“For those of you who jumped into Stories for sharing a bite-sized glimpse of video content in a professional context, thank you,” Lee said.

“Stories provide an easy way for you to share insights, ask for help, and react to news and industry updates,” Lee said.
