How to Find Someone’s LinkedIn Posts

Social monitoring is an opportunity to listen to online activity to see what people are talking about; while there are great tools available to help you follow phrases, brands and specific users  it’s also easy to  simply search for someone on a specific social media channel.

LinkedIn is a great resource for seeing what your contacts are interested in.

  • prospect’s recent Pulse articles, posts and comments
  • client’s activities – status updates, new photos
  • competitor interactions – new connections, groups they’ve joined

LinkedIn has two options for sorting your newsfeed:

  1. Top Updates: LinkedIn algorithm to sort your feed based on your recent activity
  2. Recent Updates: LinkedIn sorts your feed chronologically

tip: if you can find these, they’re the 3 little dots in the upper right corner above your newsfeed: the dots are a drop-down menu.

Often, I need to find a specific person’s recent LinkedIn posts, and I don’t have the time or patience to keep scrolling through, especially since I don’t know when the recent activity occurred. You can see the recent activity of both Connections and members you are not connected to.

3 Easy Steps to See Anyone’s LinkedIn Recent Activity

1.  Search and select that person in the LinkedIn search field

2.  If they ARE a Connection: Select the drop-down menu in the Send a message box

If they are NOT a Connection: Select the drop-down menu next to the Send InMail box

3. Choose View recent activity
