I try to share something once a day. Of course, this is dependent on how busy I am. As I type, it has been a few days since I shared something.

If you are a good and prolific writer, great! Original thought-provoking content is always good to share with your LinkedIn network. I also think it is a good idea to share relevant articles to your network that you find interesting or gave you good insight. Don’t just share the article, explain why you did and why the reader of your post and the article would as well. If you are good at this, you have the potential of becoming a resource to others in your network, giving them a summary of good articles that they would otherwise miss or must read fully themselves. In LinkedIn, this is also seen favorably to have others interact with your posts, whether they read the post, like it or comment on it.
One caveat though, sharing too much or sharing articles that are not valuable will create an opportunity for someone in your network to want to silence your posts in their feeds or stop following you altogether. I have friends that post multiple times per day as they are prolific readers. They also just like to share the articles with little commentary. As a result, their readership on LinkedIn and their networks have plummeted. Once you have someone in your network silence your updates, you have potentially lost them for good.

Not posting is a bad idea and missed opportunities. Too many posts can be as bad if not worse. The key is finding the right balance for you and your network.

I'm starting to comment more on others' published content and recognize I need to be better about posting my own on  a regular periodic basis.

About 3x/week. See my profile for ideas about what.  www.linkedin.com/in/danieljgisser. Some is planned ahead, some is spontaneous.

I am old school, probably not the right answer, but infrequently would be my answer.  My young mentor tells my to be more often, but I tend to network the old way - meet and greet.  To date, those who want to connect with me, I am not certain can help me.  Again, maybe I am too old school, but I guess I value quality vs. quantity

Happy Friday,

I have not posted much content on LinkedIn.    I certainly have been encouraged to do do.   Maintaining an attitude of content that is tightly bound to social capital is one of the secrets to engaging value.

Regards,

Bernard

I have never posted any content, and  am impressed by folk here who post often.  I'm curious to know how your frequent posting has benefited you, if you're able to share.  So curious!

Best,  ~Pam

Once a day. I now have five years of newsletters and am posting them occasionally as articles. Then I create a post that points to the article so more people will see it. 

Also, it is more important to COMMENT substantively on LinkedIn than to LIKE. See discussion here.  http://bit.ly/2HLnx6N

At one of our Patina Nation webinars on using LinkedIn - we learned a lot about how posts of content actually get seen and by whom.  If you are able to attend the next session by Wayne Breitbarth - it is worth it.  You will be surprised to learn not everyone will see your LinkedIn posts.

I prefer once a week - seems to be a nice balance.

I post original content about 3 to 4 times a week. This includes reposts of my podcasts, videos related to current news or articles that I've written. I've focused on developing my personal brand and voice and also paying attention to feedback and the types of folks engaging with my content to keep whatever I post relevant to my personal brand and the audience that follows me. Some of my posts have received upwards of 10k+ views and seem to average about 500 to 2500 engagements a week depending on what I post.  

That said, posting to LinkedIn shouldn't be about quantity but rather quality and context. Don't post to just post - post meaningful content to engage and pass along good information. The more relevant your content is, the more your interactions will grow.
