Updates will immediately be visible on your Recent Activity page and broadcast to your network when you make changes to your profile. Learn how to view your Recent Activity page.
- Your Recent Activity page is not the same as your homepage. You must go to your Recent Activity page after making any change to confirm that they were broadcast.
- While the majority of your updates appear on your Recent Activity page for 14 days, this duration varies depending on the type of activity. Learn more about how long updates show in your recent activity.
You can also adjust the activity broadcast setting while editing your profile:
- Move your cursor over Profile at the top of your homepage and select Edit Profile.
- Toggle the button in the Notify Your Network? box on the right to either Yes or No.
