How to Find Somebody’s LinkedIn Wall

While Twitter and LinkedIn continually add features to try to be more like the other guys, they don’t always make it easy to find things (for example Twitter’s group message feature, or how to opt out of LinkedIn sponsored InMail). Here is how to find somebody’s LinkedIn wall, such as that of a friend or contact on LinkedIn, where they post updates to their LinkedIn stream.

The bottom line is that in order to view somebody’s LinkedIn wall, you actually want to view what LinkedIn calls their ‘recent activity’. This means that you want to find the “View recent activity” link from their LinkedIn profile, which you will find in a couple of different ways, depending on, for example, whether or not you are actually connected with them on LinkedIn.

The key to finding that ‘View recent activity’ link, regardless of whether or not you are connected to the person, is to go to their profile, and find the little down arrow on their profile next to the action button (the action button may say “Send a message”, “Connect”, or “Follow, depending, again, on whether and how you are conneted to them), and click on it.

You can do this even with people whom you don’t know, and with whom you have no LinkedIn connection:

Note that you can also “Follow” people, which will then put their updates (the things that they post to their wall) on your home page.

Even if you have no connection whatsoever with the person, and they are also not a luminary like Richard Branson, you can still view their wall.
