The unversioned APIs are going to be sunset soon. We recommend that you migrate to the versioned APIs as well as migrate to the new Content and Community Management APIs to avoid disruptions. See the Migration page for more details. If you haven’t yet migrated and have questions, submit a request on the LinkedIn Developer Support Portal.
LinkedIn offers a Shares and Social Stream API Platform through which members can share content and insights with their professional network. Shared content can be personal shares or organization shares and is distributed to members through the network updates stream.
The network updates stream is a rich and engaging real-time feed of content and changes in a member’s first and second-degree network. Viral interactions and activities in the stream create additional distribution opportunities across the larger network of professionals on LinkedIn.
UGC Posts API
The User-Generated Post(UGC Post) API is an API that will eventually replace the Shares API. UGC Post is currently best suited for creating and fetching video posts. The Shares API does not support video. Use the UGC Post API to create video content for organic posts and video ads.
The Posts API is a new API that will eventually replace the UGC Post API and Shares API. You can create and retrieve various types of posts such as image post, video post, article post, poll post and multiImage post using the Posts API. More functionality will soon be added to the Posts API.
