“How many of you are avid video-watchers on YouTube? If you’re one, how often do you tend to press like on the videos that you enjoy watching?” Upon asking these questions to over 5,000 netizens in our recent survey, we found out that there are two kinds of users online: the ones who tend to like almost every content that comes up on their feed and the ones who avoid the general practice of liking any content, unless it’s something special.
Such users are not merely limited to YouTube but are present on every social media platform, LinkedIn included. However, if you’re a LinkedIn user, likes hold more value than a mere double-tap. Engagement is an essential part of networking on this professional social media platform.
And if you’re a user with over 10k or 20k followers on LinkedIn, your engagement is scrutinized even more closely. It is because your followers could potentially be taking note of what you like and why. If this is the first time you’re reading the fact, does it make you want to go back and check all the posts you’ve liked in the past?
In today’s blog, we’re here to talk about the path of finding the LinkedIn posts that you’ve liked in the past. If this is something you’ve wondered about, stay tuned till the end to find some answers.
Is It Possible to Find Liked Posts on LinkedIn?
As of today, LinkedIn is currently one of the most open social media spaces for netizens, where users seldom create private profiles. In other words, accessing the data about the posts you’ve liked is just as easy for you as it is for the next person.
In such circumstances, if you’re still not aware of how to find your liked posts on the platform, we aim to fix that right here.
Take a look at the step-by-step guide given below to find your liked posts on LinkedIn. We’re using the steps of the mobile app for reference, but you’ll be able to follow them on the web app as well:
Step 1: Navigate the LinkedIn app from your smartphone’s menu grid and tap on it to launch the platform.
Step 2: Upon launching the app, you’ll find your on the Home tab first.
Navigate the thumbnail of your profile picture icon towards the top-left corner of your screen. When you find it, tap on it.
Step 3: When you tap on it, a menu will swipe in from the left side of your screen. Here, you’ll find your profile picture and name on the top.
Below this, you’ll see the View profile option. Tap on it to go to your profile.
Step 4: Once you land on your profile, swipe down until your Activity section. It will be placed below the Featured section.
Below the four posts listed in this section, you’ll find this option: Show all activity.
Tap on this option.
Step 5: Next, you’ll find yourself on a tab with the heading: Articles, posts & more…
There are several subsections on this tab, and the one you’ll automatically land on is of All activity.
It is this section wherein lies the record of all the posts you’ve liked and commented on, arranged in reverse chronological order (from the most recent to the oldest).
What about the likes of other users on your LinkedIn posts?
Now that we’ve answered the basic query you came looking for, let’s move forward to the opposite situation: checking the likes of other users on your own LinkedIn posts.
Thankfully, this isn’t as tricky as the first one and is similar to all social media platforms, such as Instagram and Facebook.
All you need to do is open a particular post, scroll to its bottom, and navigate the Engagement section, which contains the information about the likes, comments, reposts, and forwarding options for it.
The first option in this section is likes (as well as other reactions, such as celebrate, support, funny, love, insightful, and curious).
Below this section, you’ll see a Reactions section, with the first six reactions mentioned with their profiles and an ellipsis icon at the right-most corner. As soon as you tap on this icon, you’ll find the list of all the reactions to your post.
There you go!
