That seems to be LinkedIn’s mindset, as it recently announced a live video tool that will enable users to broadcast to connections and followers.

TechCrunch reported:

In coming weeks, LinkedIn will also post a contact form for others who want to get in on the action. It’s not clear when and if LinkedIn will make it possible for everyone to create LinkedIn Live videos, but if you consider how it developed its publishing features for written work, that will come later, too.
