LinkedIn are in the process of making changes to the way we use their platform, to quote “These new products and experiences help us with our mission of connecting the world’s professionals to make them more productive and successful in order to lift and transform the global economy”.
Until we know more about these changes, we would suggest you request an archive of your data. Once requested, this data will include your messages, connections, and imported contacts and within 24 hours, LinkedIn will send you another email with a link where you can download a second archive, including activity, publishing activity, account history and much more.
Request a download in 3 easy steps:
- Move your cursor over your profile photo at the top right of your homepage and select Privacy & Settings
- Select the Account tab at the top of the page. Under Basics, click Change (You may be prompted to sign in)
- This will take you to the Request your data archive page.
To find out more information please visit the LinkedIn help centre here. If you or your colleagues should require help, support or training on how to use LinkedIn more effectively, please contact me via LinkedIn or via our contact form and I’ll be happy to help you.
