Stumped that when you look at your LinkedIn Profile you only see 500+ connections? Wondering what the exact number is?
If you’re on your LinkedIn home page, look to the right and scroll down to a section titled, “Your LinkedIn Network” on the right side. Scrolling down you will see: (A) the number of connections that link to you; (B) the number of new people in your network. It gives you an idea of the number of people in your first level of connections and the number and size of your network through three levels of connection.
When you are on your LinkedIn Connections page, click on the gear icon and you can see the sources of your LinkedIn Connections. You can also find the same information if you go here: https://www.linkedin.com/contacts/manage_sources/ It provides the ability to see what sources your connections have come from and the amount of connections from each specific source.
You can also go here: https://www.linkedin.com/people/connections (you may need to refresh the page) and it will show the exact count of connections you have.
