To make field usage more consistent in LinkedIn Company Pages Follower Details queries, as well as to remove a field no longer used by the API, we will be deprecating the following fields on October 27th, 2021:
- Sponsored followers
- Employee followers
- Non-employee followers
Employee followers and Non-employee followers behavior will be replaced with a new dimension named Follower association, which can be used jointly with Organic followers to get the same count as the metrics we will be removing. This new field will be available after October 6th.
Please ensure that the fields being deprecated are removed from your queries or updated to use the new setup before October 27th. After this, the deprecated fields will return empty data.
