Staying LinkedIn via RSS

Many of us join different social networking sites to interact with our network and stay current. LinkedIn is another one of these tools with a more professional bend to it.

Blogs have also become part of my ritual, and hence RSS feeds. Now we have a match made in heaven. I took the LinkedIn updates RSS feeds and plugged it into my Google RSS reader account.



What makes this really cool is that now when any of my ‘connections’ has an update, I get little snippets in my RSS reader.

So what is an update?

Usually a change of any of the following:

  • Profile picture
  • Job status
  • Bio update
  • New connections (really cool)


All of these let you stay connected with changes to your network. And it just fits with my daily workflow without cluttering up my email box with summary emails.

So stay linked in and use your favorite RSS reader.
