How to Add LinkedIn to "Share on Activity Feed"

Do to an upcoming presentation, I had to make sure that I had a LinkedIn share on Blogs, etc. I added Data66's cool plugin, which provided the link on the blog page itself, but I also wanted it on the Home page activity feed. After several attempts, I got a link to work!! Here is what I did (see screenshots as well).

Where I went:
AdminCP > Modules > Share > Add Social Network.

After trying about 20 URLs, the one below (without the beginning and ending brackets) worked and gave me the LinkedIn mini share box.

Hopefully this will save someone else a little time.
