How to post on my company activity?

Hi, I'm new here.
I had a look around but I'have not yet found any solution to my problem.
My goal is to post a share on my company (i am admin of it) wall / activity.

I've seen an easy way to post on my profile

***********************************************
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://platform.linkedin.com/in.js">
api_key: ji**********
authorize: true
onLoad: onLinkedInLoad
</script>

<script type="text/javascript">
function onLinkedInLoad() {
IN.Event.on(IN, "auth", function () { onLinkedInLogin(); });
}

function onLinkedInLogin() {
IN.Event.on("shareAPI", "click", doSharingTest);
}

function doSharingTest() {
IN.API.Raw("/people/~/shares")
.method("POST")
.body(JSON.stringify({
"content": {
"submitted-url": "http://www.mydomain.com",
"title": "Title Test",
"description": "Description Test",
"submitted-image-url": "http://www.mydomain.com/img/img.gif"
},
"visibility": {
"code": "anyone"
},
"comment": "comment"
})
)
.result(function (r) {
alert("POST OK");
})
.error(function (r) {
alert("POST FAIL");
});
}
</script>

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
<title></title>
</head>
<body>
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<div>
<script type="IN/Login">
Hello, <?js= firstName ?> <?js= lastName ?>.
</script>
<p>Sharing Test: <a href="#" id="shareAPI">Click here</a></p>
</div>
</form>
</body>
</html>
***********************************************

is there a similar way to do the same for my company (found nothing)?
Thank you

Hi Mauro,

At this time, we don't have a company share API as part of our open developer program. Please keep an eye on the site for future announcements, but unfortunately as per company policy, LinkedIn doesn't provide ETAs / timelines on unreleased functionality.

Thank you Jeremy.
Beside a share API are there any way to write on company activity/wall from an outside resource (not manually)? from twitter to linkedin or whatever?

Hi Mauro,

I apologize, but there isn't a way to do this at this time.

Hey Jeremy,
I wanted to post some information on my company page on a daily basis, automatically using oauth. I was wondering what's the character limit of the message/status. I read somewhere it's 140 characters but I have seen people posting statuses more than that. Could you please clarify.

Thanks.
Regards.

Hi,

We don't have an API for posting to company pages as part of our open program (as mentioned already in the posts above) at this time.

Jeremy,

Any word on how Hootsuite is able to "Post status updates to the new LinkedIn company pages from HootSuite" then? (http://hootsuite.com/linkedin-management)

Is this privileged access, or perhaps marketing spin?

Hi Adam,

As indicated above, we do not have a company share API as part of our open developer program. Hootsuite is part of our Certified Developer Program and has access to APIs that aren't currently part of our open developer program at this time.

Any idea if you guys are going to open up your CDP again?

Thanks,

Hi Adam,

I apologize, but you will need to submit an application and see if you are approved. Those on the forums here have nothing to do with that process.

Looking forward to the ability to post to company pages through open developers API. Will someone update this thread when that becomes available or where would a developer signup to receive those updates? Especially since there are never ETA's for new functionality.

Thanks!

Hi Nicholas,

Yes, I will do my best to update this thread. You can also look on our developer blog as we will announce it there.

Hi Jeremy,

I am having the same problem as Effie and can't get my company's news feed to post on our groups: http://www.shephardmedia.com/news/rotorhub/feed/

Any advice would be great.

Hi Tony, this forum is for developers leveraging the LinkedIn Javascript APIs. For RSS feeds, you should be able to find the answers on our LinkedIn customer service site: help.linkedin.com

Hope that helps,
Kamyar

I've viewed this thread quite a bit, but never commented. For the record, my client would also like to add this feature.

I can't find any evidence that it's available yet. Would be great though.

We do not have any update on this feature now. Whenever we are ready with an update we will surely let our developer's community know by updating our docs and posting it on our forum. Thanks for your patience!

Best

Just throwing in my vote for this functionality! (End Goal: I want to be able to send new blog posts from my company website to our LinkedIn page (like we presently do with facebook and twitter). At the moment I can only send them to my personal LinkedIn page.)

Please make this api call available to open developer program. I'm withdrawing support for Linkedin in our application at this point because of non-availability of post API on company's wall. Will include when it is available. Please get it guys... Please.

Excuse me.
The first question was about the Javascript Share Api and I undestand that this feature is not available.
This is also true for the REST share API?
I cannot publish to my company page using the Rest share API http://developer.linkedin.com/documents/share-api
Thank you very much for clarifying this

Agree. This will be helpful, else the API seems to be missing some very important features.
