Requirements

  • LinkedIn has to approve your profile or company page for live streaming. Here are the key requirements:

    • Audience base: 150+ followers/connections to qualify for LinkedIn Live.

    • History: Good standing under Professional Community Policies.

    • Geography: Unavailable in mainland China.

    • Account age: Page or profile must be 30+ days old.
