LinkedIn brings back Activity feed. So where did they hide it.

It is not like the old activity feed this new version is now on your profile page. It’s hiding behind that little blue button that says “Send a Message”. Click on the dropdown and “View recent Activity” will appear.

When you click on activity a new page will appear and at the top will be RECENT ACTIVITY with a (number) in parenthesis. This will show you the person’s number of activities. If there isn’t any activity you will have a blank page.

“View recent activity is available to your first, second, and third degree connections only. Group members, and profiles of those out of your network you still cannot see their activity.

This works well if you are in sales or even job search. Viewing your prospects or the hiring manager’s activity will give you a little business intellegence. If you are in sales viewing a prospects activity feed may show some pain points. Or if you are in job search viewing a hiring manager’s activity may disclose what type of employee they are looking for.
