Changes to competitive benchmarking for LinkedIn Company Pages 🔐

by Justina Michalski on October 17, 2019

End of June 2019, LinkedIn announced bigger changes to their permission system affecting how third parties like ourselves can ask Company Page owners to authenticate and grant access to data around their Company Pages. A big question mark for us was for long whether LinkedIn will still support competitive benchmarking by allowing access to basic metrics around followers and posts of any Company Page, not just for those a user administers.

Now, with the changes being effective since a few days, we can confirm LinkedIn has officially dropped support for competitive benchmarking except for tracking of public follower counts. In the meantime, our team has been implementing LinkedIn private statistics access as a direct replacement to help you tracking your owned LinkedIn Company Pages.
