By default, LinkedIn shows number of connections on the public profile page of any LinkedIn member. But when number of connections are more than 500, it displays value as 500+.
I was wondering if it was possible to see exact number of followers (which is considered equal to number of connections).
The processes is easy, but i have seen people struggling for getting this done, so thought of writing the steps with screenshots to help out everyone. (I myself din't knew it, thanks to Sourabh.Jain for helping me out with this).
Here is the simplest way of doing this:
1) Log in into your LinkedIn account.
2) In the search box at the top of screen, Search for the person whom followers you wish to see.
3) On the public profile page, click on the drop down menu, and select 'View recent activity'
4) The activity page will show the total number of followers of that person.
