From time to time, I receive this kind of notification from LinkedIn, that has this spotlight icon. These notifications don't come from my network of contacts, and isn't either one of the "trending topics".

enter image description here

  1. Which name this kind of notification has?
  2. Is it paid advertisement, or just selected recommended posts?
  3. Who selects which posts are recommendable?
  4. Which criteria is used for the selection?

(Obviously I will disable it, because they, whoever they are, always miss what is interesting to me. It's just SPAM.)
