Every month I like to keep track of how many LinkedIn connections I have, but once you get over 500 it just says 500+ and finding the actual number is like trying to find Waldo in a field of candy canes. I’m not sure why LinkedIn likes to hide this number, but after struggling to figure out how to do it I decided to write down the process. Took me long enough, but that’s because I’m the kind of computer savant who thinks “cloud services” are the free drinks you get on a first class plane trip.
Anyway, I thought I would share the secret with you since I must not be the only one who has this problem.
1. Log in to Linkedin.com.
Since you have 500+ connections you should have this part down by now!
2. Search for yourself! Type your name into the search box at the top.
Feels weird, I know.
3. The search results will appear and underneath your city you will see a 500+ in green.
4. Click on the green 500+ and the next page will show a search of all of your connections. At the top (above your picture) it will tell you how many results there are. That’s how many connections you have! Hooray!
