LinkedIn allows approved members and pages to broadcast live video content to a LinkedIn profile, LinkedIn Page, or Event. All Live Videos are public and will be recorded. After a stream is complete, it will remain on the feed of your LinkedIn profile or page as a video that was “previously recorded live.”
Access to LinkedIn Live
To become a LinkedIn Live broadcaster, you need to meet the Live Video access criteria. If you believe you meet these criteria, you can apply to become a broadcaster by doing one of the following:
- Auto-apply for access using Socialive
- Turn on creator mode on your LinkedIn profile for access to creator tools
- Create an event on LinkedIn to generate an automatic check to see whether you are eligible. If you are, you will be able to choose LinkedIn Live in the event format drop-down.
All three pathways above will perform the same check to see whether you meet LinkedIn’s access criteria. Only members and pages who’ve received access via one of the pathways can become LinkedIn Live Broadcasters.
If you do not meet their criteria, you will not be granted access. If you feel like your status has changed and would like to be reconsidered, you can check again in 30 days.
