In his third LinkedIn article for start-ups Mark Lee explains how to use status updates; what works and what’s unlikely to do so.
This article is part of an extended series on the professional networking site LinkedIn. Future guides will look at things like endorsements, recommendations, groups, and lead generation on LinkedIn. Part 1 focused on why you would want to register on LinkedIn and how you can craft an effective profile to make it easy for people to find you. And in Part 2 I looked at connection requests.
This edition looks at status updates, the short messages that have become a common feature of so many social networking platforms and looks at the following points:
- Who sees your status updates?
- Status updates to avoid
- Status updates that could work for you
- Commenting on others’ status updates

Mark stopped giving tax advice himself despite being a past Chairman of the Chartered Accountants’ Tax Faculty. He is however Chairman of the Tax Advice Network - the UK's highest ranked lead generation website for tax advisers and accountants. The network also publishes a weekly practical tax update for accountants in general practice and full tax support, on demand too. You can also use it as a lead generation resource for local people seeking tax advice from an accountant.
