What is a LinkedIn Newsletter?
For beginners, this newsletter isn’t like the usual email-based “newsletter” which can be subscribed to on other websites. A LinkedIn newsletter has the writer’s feel to it, as opposed to the generic “send me a newsletter” style.
This newsletter is a collection of articles published on a regular basis, usually with an interesting topic. When an author publishes a new article in the newsletter, members can subscribe to get a push, in-app, and email notifications. Each LinkedIn member can access the newsletters, available for browsing, reading, and even sharing.
How to Find Newsletters You’re Subscribed to?
Finding where those newsletters you subscribed to is very easy! Log in to your LinkedIn Profile. –> Click the “My Network” icon at the top of your homepage. –> Click the “Newsletters” menu item in the left rail section and you’ll see the list of newsletters you have already subscribed to.
