The Talks About section not appearing on your LinkedIn profile can be a sign that you have not yet enabled the Creator Mode profile setting on your LinkedIn account. Moreover, the Talks About section needs to be configured correctly to show the hashtags of your interests on your LinkedIn profile.
Managing a Linkedin account is not like managing a social media account, for it is not a platform for users to have a personalized one as they have it on Facebook.
In other words, it is not a platform to socialize to get to know other users. It is a serious application striving to highlight an individual’s career growth, of a group, and so forth. It serves as a portfolio for many companies and individuals.
Linkedin provides every user with a perspective. A perspective to ensure that the associations they are making in the form of connections define their ideology, growth, and the vision they represent as a company or as a user.
Therefore, it becomes important to ensure that the users improve their profile for attracting potential connections and offers depending upon the nature of their profile.
