Starting on April 14, 2014, the LinkedIn Company Products and Services tab will be removed from all LinkedIn company pages. This feature will no longer be supported by LinkedIn. Until April 14, users can still edit existing products and services but will not be able to add new products and services.
At LinkedIn, we aim to provide a simple and efficient experience for our members. To do this, we’re continuously evaluating how our current products and features are used, and seeking new ways to focus our resources on building the best products. This sometimes results in the retirement of certain features. So on April 14th, the Products & Services tab will be removed from all LinkedIn Company Pages.
LinkedIn suggests saving the information and recommendations you have gathered by copying them into a separate document.
LinkedIn also suggests two ways to now share information about products and services – showcase pages and company updates:
- Showcase Pages allow you to extend your Company Page presence by creating a dedicated page for prominent products and services. A Showcase Page should be used for building long-term relationships with members who want to follow specific aspects of your business, and not for short-term marketing campaigns.
- Company Updates are key to building relationships with your page followers. When your followers engage with your updates, it spreads your message to their networks and provides you even greater reach. Updates can be seen by your followers not just on your Company Page, but also on their newsfeed (across all devices including mobile).
