Share on LinkedIn Plugin
Deprecating the inShare Counter
February 7, 2018
The Share on LinkedIn plugin, also known as the inShare plugin, will no longer display the counter that shows the number of shares.
This change removes the displayed share count, and the underlying data at http://www.linkedin.com/countserv/count/share will also stop returning the share count. This does not impact the ability for people to share content to LinkedIn using the plugin.
Developers can continue to leverage the Share API, and we have updated our documentation here to remove any references to the plugin’s counter.
Why this deprecation?
The share count on its own doesn’t fully reflect the impact that a piece of content delivers, and we encourage publishers and other content creators to leverage the inShare plugin as a way to drive conversation and engage with members on LinkedIn.
