You think you’ve gotten a hang of how LinkedIn works, but where can you go to see all of your recent activity?

I must admit that unless you take the time to push every button and drop-down menu on the homepage you might miss how you can preview all of your recent activity on LinkedIn at once. This post is a quick “how-to” on doing just that in 4 easy steps.

1.  Log on to LinkedIn and view your Homepage

2.  On the upper right hand side click on the drop-down menu that says “All Updates.”

Why you should view your recent LinkedIn activity

Periodically review your recent activity and gauge the impact you are making in your network. Look to see how your posts are doing. Is the content you’re sharing being liked, commented on, and shared by others in your network? Are any recent posts you’ve liked also being liked by individuals you have interest in knowing better? These are great ways to start a conversation with people.

These are just a few questions to ask yourself. Never thought about using your activity in this strategic manner? Test it – see if you can use your activity to start a conversation or two.
