Humblebragging on LinkedIn

Humblebragging on LinkedIn

Humbragging is that modest or self-deprecating statement where the real purpose is to draw attention to something you are proud of. LinkedIn is full of people humblebragging. Awards. Promotions. Deals.

There are two serious flaws with social media.

  • People only showcase the highlights, not a balanced picture.
  • If these people’s careers are so impressive, why do they still craft these perfect posts to persuade everyone else about how important they are?

There is a strategy to network professionally and get the benefits from LinkedIn the way it was designed to do.

Ditch The Boasting

Ditch The Boasting

Marketing blogger Jonathan Greene describes

  • Facebook as a pub crawl (a few friends and some random acquaintances talking about everything)
  • Twitter as a speed date (you’ve got a short amount of time to grab someone’s attention)
  • LinkedIn as after-work office drinks (a chance to mingle strategically).

Don't boast on LinkedIn. You wouldn't do it in real life, don't do it online. Instead, highlight other people's good work. Talk positively about projects you're involved in but don't amplify your part. People can decide for themselves.

Clarify, Then Work Backwards

Understand why you engage with LinkedIn. What are you trying to achieve?

  • Do you want to open up career opportunities?
  • Are you trying to find new customers?
  • Are you trying to build a reputation in your industry?

Once you know your "why", work out what kind of activity will move you closer to that goal. Then plan your actions.

Finding people doing the same thing as you but are a bit further ahead can help you find ideas on the type of posts, regularity, tone and strategy.

Be Real

Be true to yourself. Don't boast, but don't undersell yourself either. Be positive and professional, but be personal too.

The reasons you have to be on LinkedIn boils down to you coming across well and being able to back it up in real life.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
