How to Remain in Contact With Your LinkedIn Network Using RSS
I have been using LinkedIn for a number of years to stay in touch with my business and social contact. While I actively use the site I found that it is easier to monitor the network activity on the site from my favorite RSS reader and see when my contact make a link to somebody I already know.
To activate the feature you simply need to go to the "More" option on the top of the Network Activity Stream on your LinkedIn home page. The image below shows the exact location of the option. From there you will be taken to the configuration screen which provides the URL for your RSS feed.
Once the feature is enabled you will be able to monitor all network activity, the most important of which is when your contacts connect with a new contact. You can simply click on the new contact and request a connection as well. This has been particularly effective as an early adopter because I am now seen a larger number of my former co-workers and business contacts join the site and I get notice as soon as a mutual contact finds them.
