What does Promoted in LinkedIn mean?

On its website and mobile applications, Linkedin allows marketers to place native advertisements in the news feeds of its users. Linkedin posts that are marked as ‘Promoted’ contain an image ad, a link, a video ad, or a carousel ad. If you notice a post that has the word ‘Promoted’ under the company or individual’s name, it implies that the post is an advertising for that company or people.
