Interested in formatting the text in your LinkedIn profile and LinkedIn posts? You can bold, italicize and underline text in your LinkedIn profile and posts using our LinkedIn Text Formatter. LinkedIn doesn’t natively allow for formatting but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. The letters and numbers you see on your keyboard aren’t the only letters and numbers available to us. By using Unicode symbols that look like formatted text, we are able to trick LinkedIn and the viewer into thinking what they are seeing is bold or italics, or underlined text.
Before using our LinkedIn Text Formatter, please be aware:
The takeaway here is to consider the ramifications and benefits of using formatted text in your LinkedIn profile. Please make a thoughtful decision and if you do decide it makes sense, use it sparingly.
CAUTION: If you are close to the maximum characters, you may find that LinkedIn’s character count behaves a little wonky when you paste your unicode text in. Makes sure you save your original text.
