LinkedIn today announced their new share button, an option that allows users to share stories from across the web via their LinkedIn account.
The button, much like other options from Facebook, Twitter, Digg and other services provides three button types, a vertical button with a share counter, a smaller horizontal button with a counter and a horizontal button that lacks a counter (all pictured above).
Also just like other share buttons, users need virtually no programming experience to use the code, simply grab a few lines of code and paste that code where you want it to appear on your websites pages.
Now if LinkedIn can just figure out how to convince website owners to add their button in an already crowded space and they’ll be in business. I can see this new share option being popular on Business websites and sites that feature the occasional business based article.
