AddThis now supports LinkedIn follow buttons for companies and groups as well as users. Here’s how to use the button as a user:

<a class="addthis_button_linkedin_follow" addthis:userid="username"></a>
Replace username with your LinkedIn username, which you can find by going to your LinkedIn profile and looking for after the /in/For a group, set the addthis:usertype parameter to group and set the addthis:userid parameter to the group ID, which you can find by going to the page in Facebook
<a class="addthis_button_linkedin_follow" addthis:usertype="group" addthis:userid="1234567"></a>
Note: Again, replace 1234567 with the ID of your group.For companies it’s similar to groups. Set the addthis:usertype parameter to company and the addthis:userid parameter with your company name.
<a class="addthis_button_linkedin_follow" addthis:usertype="company" addthis:userid="company_name"></a>

Note: Once again, replace company_name with the name of your company from its LinkedIn URL.
