Follow us on LinkedIn button


Does anyone have any experience with integrating a “follow us on LinkedIn” button?

According to linked in I should integrate this script & replace the data-id parameter with my company page ID on linkedIn.

<script src="" type="text/javascript"> lang: en_US</script><script type="IN/FollowCompany" data-id="0000" data-counter=“bottom"></script>

I have tried to Insert > Special content and placed the snippet with the correct id, in the ‘embedded content’ field. Also tried a live test on the www. Unfortunately nothing seems to work.

Would be very grateful if someone can help me out!


How it worked for me:
Make a button (with LinkedIn logo)
Go to your personal or business page of LinkedIn.
Copy the link.
Click on your button LinkedIn
Go to inspection dashboard ‘Bij klikken’ → ‘Ga naar externe link’
Insert the link on ‘Link URL’


Hi there,

Thanks for helping out, much appreciated! At present I have set up my set in the same way. With a LinkedIn Button to our company LinkedIn page.

However I would like people to click to follow us straight from our website, without having to switch to our LinkedIn page. LinkedIn provides this option by delivering a plugin code that can be found here

I just can’t seem to get it to work in Sparkle. I have no experience coding (why I love Sparkle so much :slight_smile: but have bought the developers upgrade to get this button to work.

Does anyone have any experience integrating this follow me plugin?

Looks like a curly quote snuck in your code (before “bottom”), try again, replacing your id and either using a code editor or editing directly in the embed element in Sparkle:

<script src="" type="text/javascript"> lang: en_US</script>
<script type="IN/FollowCompany" data-id="0000" data-counter="bottom"></script>

Yésss! Works like a charm! Thanks Duncan!
