How to know your LinkedIn connections number after 500+

LinkedIn connection number
Know your numbers!
Want to know how many total LinkedIn connections that you have? If you have more than 500, LinkedIn’s new format makes it hard for you to know your total connections count. That’s because in the new format, the box that used to show you your total LinkedIn connections count has been removed.

Here's how to find out your total number of LinkedIn connections:

LinkedIn connection count
Your total connections (beyond “500+”) used to be shown on your LinkedIn home page.

No worries! It’s easy to find your connections count (even though LinkedIn completely hid it). You just need to know where to look. First, click on the Connections tab and then click the settings icon (it looks like a gear).

Click Connections and then the gear icon.

Next, click Refresh next to the LinkedIn logo.

Refreshing your LinkedIn contacts will cause your number of contacts (connections) to appear.

It may take a few minutes to refresh, but once the system has refreshed, your total number of contacts (connections) will appear.

Voila! Now you know how to find your total LinkedIn connections despite LinkedIn’s best attempt to bury your number.
