2. Share a Popular Article from a New York Times Section

IFTTT Recipe: NYT Business Day to LinkedIn Status connects the-new-york-times to linkedinThe New York Times is in the content creation business and they are also a reputable source. There is a variety of ways to share their content but my favorite way is to share popular content from a section. I chose to share the popular articles from their ‘Business Day’ content. By sharing only popular articles, you aren’t overloading your connection’s newsfeed but you are still providing valuable content. You could also do this with Time Magazine and others.

3. Share New Job Openings from Companies You Follow
