Do linkedin groups show how many members they have like Facebook groups do?

  • Yes it shows how many members in that groups, once you join a LinkedIn Group, your profile becomes visible to every member in that group. A fellow group member can click on your profile, and will be able to view your information based on your privacy settings.
    However, joining a group doesn't allow you to see a fellow group member's network. Once yourself and a fellow group member become trusted connections, you can view their entire profile and connections.

    can I use an pen name to register on linkedin? Or does linkedin proof my address for verification?

    Or rent an office /maildrop address is an alternative?

      Nope, LinkedIn doesn't request a proof for verification I guess if you trying to violate their ToS they have the right to request you an ID.

        Hi Danielle,

        ok I make my question more precise:

        When I use as sole entrepreneur rent an virtual office in a different country to use that address on linkedin- is that that against their ToS?
        Use that all legal- not in some anonymous way, then the rent virtual office address is on my website too (domain is privacy protected)

          No, it's not. It good to have a consistency between the LinkedIn and your website info.

    No answer?

    Is it possible- to make my linkedin profile country specific- means that my linkedin profile is only shown in UK (as an example)?

  • Yes, they show the number of members in certain group. However, you need to be connected to other member for viewing his profile.

  • I noticed that the number of my Groups Members is stuck at 20,166 no matter how many more I add every day. Anyone facing the same issue?

    thank you for the tip!

    But I see many people are struggling with linkedin to get clients, I do not know why. Maybe the claims are higher here?

    And you have to show in profile serious big references, as well as phone number for a call to call conversation.
    So for overseas providers who do not speak fluent english, linkedin is not the right place?

    Happy new year 2018
