Does the #Linkedin algorithm remember how your last post performed?
I was trying to read and understand how the Linkedin algorithm works and here is what I have learned
Linkedin algorithm(algo) is like an Editor in Chief
But with a 0 memory
Every algo is a set of rules
The Linkedin algo sees you through an objective lens
That is beautiful, no biases and no prejudices
The moment you post, the algo does a quick hygiene check and makes your post visible to a selected few
After that, if you get engagement(likes and comments), it boosts your post
The process is so meritocratic
Budding writers can always experiment and start fresh, every post is a new beginning
The algo doesn’t allow expert writers to rest on their past laurels
Simple and neat
But here is the other part of the story: people, yes you!
People see, read, judge, have very long memories and are very subjective
People give signal to the algo to boost an engaging post
So whom should you care about the most? The algo or people?
In my opinion; no one
Write from your heart, be authentic, take inspiration but be original, be yourself
In my every post I just aim for one thing; trigger thoughts
Have I triggered yours? Pls reflect or comment
