If you have over 500 connections on LinkedIn, you might be wondering exactly how many connections you do have. However, it can be tricky to find that information on your own profile.  I’ve had over 500 connections for a while and it’s fascinating how quickly they have grown.

how_to_find_your_number_of_connections_on_linked_in I tend to accept connections only from people I have met or I’ve got to know through other social media channels. Having said that, I’ve been quite active in some ‘writing’ and ‘social media’ groups too and I’m making connections with some other members after engaging with them within the group. Growing them slowly has meant that they have been over 500 for some time and I had no idea what the total is.

Well, I recently needed to know the total number of connections and followers for all of my social media platforms and I must have spent at least ten minutes searching for my total number of LinkedIn connections. There’s a few different ways to find it but this is the quickest and easiest.

Finding Your Linkedin Connections

Click on ‘Home’ so you are viewing the news feed.

Scroll down a little and you’ll see your total number of connections in the right side bar. You can then click on it to see all of your connections – particularly convenient for if you wish to remind yourself of some of them, re-connect and engage, or consider asking some for recommendations.

Yes, it’s as easy as that. Easy when you know how but infuriating when you don’t!

      It’s one of those things you don’t think about until you need it but I found that it made me look at my connections and even re-connect with a couple by starting a conversation.

    Ditto Marie! I have around 50 requested connections from people I don’t know on LinkedIn. Don’t like to turn them down but generally only accept from people I know or who are in my industry.

      Yes, I have a lot too Dee but I tend to only accept from those I know. Having said that, I don’t need to have known them well but yes, definitely have had conversations with them online at minimum.
