Linkedin Feed?

Hello All,I'm a newbie so I appologize if this is a silly question but basically I'm hoping to add a Linkedin feed to my website (which I'm setting up to use all feed based content).Ideally it would be a feed with just my experience but if it had to include other things I'd be open to it.How would I go about this?Thanks in advance!!

You may find the profile widget the easiest way to do this: Profile Widget

Hi Nick,There's nothing quite appropriate for this use in the API yet. You are likely wanting to show your own activity on LinkedIn in such a feed, basically the equivalent of what you see on the "My Network Updates" page on LinkedIn: we don't have a timeline on when we'll be supplying an API for your personal feed of updates or an RSS feed equivalent, it's certainly something we're thinking about and see usefulness in.Thanks,Taylor

We have not finished this yet but it will be coming in the next few months.

ANY ETA on the API?

I think it'd behoove LI to come up with a personal feed. With Facebook having come out with OpenGraph and about to embark on Comments dominance, it's time for LI to harness its network energy; this would be a good start in getting LI out into the world and staking its territory.

Is the LinkedIn Feed RSS or API ready to use yet?

See the Social Stream section of the API Overview for information about how to include your activity stream elsewhere.

I am also trying to get a RSS feed for my activity and can't figure out, nor in this API section. Any update/help?

Is there a way to embed feed from a group onto a website? I have used Google Groups for this in the past but I was wondering if LInkedin has added this feature yet. It would be best to keep the group on Linkedin but if there is no way to feed to a webpage to archive group activity then we will stick with Google for now

Have there been any updates regarding a personal feed of updates or an RSS feed equivalent? Thank you.

I too would like to know if this has been composed - I am currently skimming the web and will post my findings...

How does one save the search criteria entered in an advanced search? Mine keeps disappearing.

You can use our social stream API to get a feed of your network updates.

Hi Shikah, I am trying to add my company feed to my website.
I tried ''{id}/updates'' but it shows error. Thanks in advance for any help.

hey Bhabani:

Can you give more details about what API calls are you trying to make and what error are you getting. For more details on how to use the company API please see this doc.

So I have a question. I would like to do as bhaban stated above, which is to say I am the company admin of a site and I want our website to display the same updates that are shown on our LinkedIN homepage. I want this to happen automatically and be invisible to the public website user i.e. without having anyone have to login in. Is this possible with JS or does it have to be done with the REST api? I have read the JS API and it seems that you can only make JS calls to the API by first having someone authenticate with linkedIN in each browser instance. Clearly I don't want to subject users to that I just want to show our updates on linked in. It is odd because this is a read only view of something that is already public on your site.

I need to know if a WordPress plugin or API has been built to allow the following function:

We want to have an Activity feed which appears on a company website, this feed will come directly from a specific LinkedIn persons profile. So basically every time we update our LinkedIn activity within our profile, this activity will the appear on the website feed.

Hi Adam,

Currently this isn't a supported use case. We don't have a plugin that displays a feed of someone's network updates stream. And with our REST/JS APIs, you need to be authenticated as a user in order to view your network updates feed. So that use case wouldn't be supported unless you had a user authenticate on your site first before displaying their feed publicly.

Hi Kamyar.

I'm confused, we're a higher ed institution and want to show prospective students activity happening on our LinkedIn profiles to entice them to participate. The plan is to show this in the website experience in a widget in the right rail. Facebook and Twitter provide this functionality so companies/higher eds like us can accomplish what we're looking to do, why wouldn't LinkedIn offer it as well?

Hi Kamyar,

I would like to show my personal Linkedin profile feeds on my website. Please could you give me a link to directions on how to set this up.

Thank you
