Thank you Evan LePage
When LinkedIn introduced the new look and feel for the LinkedIn Homepage a year ago, their goal was to create a customized experience that would make it easier for people to begin each day armed with the knowledge and insights you need to be productive and successful.
Today they introduced two new features to add to to that productivity toolkit: “Who’s Viewed Your Updates” and “You Recently Visited”. Both features can be found on the right-hand side of the Homepage and both are intended to provide you with more personalized insights on your activities and engagement across LinkedIn.
Who’s Viewed Your Updates?
Who’s Viewed Your Updates provides you with one simplified snapshot of what you’ve shared over the past 14 days, who has seen it and how it has been received (liked, shared). In addition to the engagement from your 1st degree connections, Who’s Viewed Your Updates will also show you how many of those members in your 2nd and 3rd degree networks, engaged with what you shared. Now you have real-time feedback on how the content you read and share resonates within your network, giving you more opportunities to build your professional brand and make connections with new professionals that share common interests.
With this new tool, dedicated LinkedIn users have extra information that should help them hone their LinkedIn posting, tracking what works and using similar strategies in the future. This real-time resource can also help users make connections with professionals who find value in their posts.

In addition to “Who’s Viewed Your Updates,” LinkedIn announced several other profile improvements as well as a new feature called “Your Recently Visited.”
You Recently Visited
The new “You Recently Visited” feature includes highlights of recent profiles you have viewed, searches you’ve done and group discussions you have viewed or participated in. This makes it easier to retrace your steps, re-engage in conversations or follow-up with that old colleague you intended to connect with.
These new features come on the heels of many exciting updates we’ve made in recent months on the Homepage, including:
- New streamlined navigation: To make it easier for you to quickly locate the features and content that are most valuable to you.
- Add rich media to your updates: Share pictures, videos and documents that add a richer and more visual component to your professional updates.
- Call out your connections: Directly mention one of your 1st degree connections in your updates from the Homepage to start conversations, share knowledge and engage with your connections on LinkedIn.
We look forward to bringing even more personalized insights that add value to your everyday experiences on LinkedIn.
