Frequently Asked Questions

What happened to the newsfeed?

At LinkedIn, our goal is to arm you with timely, relevant, and actionable insights so you spend less time sifting through information and more time focused on what matters: building relationships and closing deals.

Alerts on the homepage gives you all the functionality of Newsfeed in a compressed, easy-to-use dashboard. Don't worry about missing anything -- all of your favorite items from the old Newsfeed live on as alerts. We've also added some new types of alerts as well! 

How can I see more alerts? 

The alerts you receive are based on the leads and accounts you've saved so far. If you're seeing few or no alerts, try saving some more leads and accounts first, then checking back a little later. 

How do I turn off a specific type of alert?  

To opt out of receiving a certain type of alert, click on the "..." next to the alert and click "Turn off."

Where can I find my Social Selling Index (SSI)?

Social Selling Index has been replaced on the homepage with the new Sales Navigator Coach, but you can still access it any time. To view your SSI, simply hover over your profile photo in the header and click “Social Selling Index” from the drop down menu. 

Where do I go if I need more help? 

From Sales Navigator, click the blue "Help" button in the bottom right corner of your screen to visit the Community and/or Help Center.
