Quick Tip: LinkedIn Activity, Introduction
Our clients are posting more and more content on LinkedIn, which makes us really happy. Unfortunately, when we begin working together, we often realize that all of their LinkedIn activity has either been hidden completely or is only visible to their first degree connections.
2. Quick Tip: LinkedIn Activity, View Profile As
In order to determine if your LinkedIn activity is visible to everyone, go to your Profile and hover over the dropdown arrow next to “View profile as” and choose “View recent activity.”
3. Quick Tip: LinkedIn Activity, View recent
“View recent activity” allows you to see your recent LinkedIn activity as well as what you have published and your followers.
Go to Privacy and Settings to make sure your activity is visible to everyone. Privacy and Settings can be found by hovering over your picture in the top right corner and selecting Privacy and Settings.
4. Quick Tip: LinkedIn Activity, Choose Viewers
Click “Select who can see your activity feed.”
5. Quick Tip: LinkedIn Activity, Choose Everyone
Change the setting to Everyone.
Why is this important? If you are found on LinkedIn, you want people to see that you are active. This signals to people that LinkedIn is a good way to communicate with you. It also gives people a glimpse into what is important to you and maybe a sample of your expertise, depending on what you are sharing.
