Hi Ray, after doing additional research, there are ways through larger LinkedIn relationships, think Universities, companies, where I believe LinkedIn will designate individuals as influencers. This is because they constantly review the list each year and update as needed.

They enabled a long form posting but they gave preferential placement to a select 500 people is my understanding.  All the usual public personalities that have PR firms doing the posting thus it seems contrary to the open competition of social media.
