The easiest way to see all your posts on LinkedIn is to go to your profile and click on the “See all activity” link. This will show you a chronological list of all your posts and interactions.
Viewing your posts on your profile
When you post content on LinkedIn such as sharing an article, photo, video, or starting a discussion, it gets added to your profile’s activity feed. Here are the steps to view your posts:
- Go to your LinkedIn profile page.
- Scroll down and look for the “See all activity” link under your introduction box.
- Clicking this link will open a pop-up window showing all your posts and interactions in reverse chronological order.
This activity feed shows all the content you’ve shared, articles you’ve written, images uploaded, and discussions started. It also includes liking and commenting on other’s posts. Basically, any engagement you’ve had on the platform can be seen here.
You can further filter the activities by content type using the options on the left – All, Articles, Images, Documents, etc. This lets you view only specific types of posts you’ve made.
Filtering posts by content type
As mentioned above, you can filter your LinkedIn activity feed based on the type of content shared. Here are some of the filters available and the types of posts they show:
- Articles – Any articles or web links you’ve shared on LinkedIn.
- Images – Photos and visual media uploads.
- Documents – Whitepapers, reports, slides that you’ve posted.
- Videos – Video clips you’ve shared on your profile.
- Text Updates – Short written posts and status updates.
Clicking any of these filters will show you only that type of content you’ve shared on LinkedIn. This helps you quickly find relevant posts when needed.
Saving important posts
For posts you consider important like an article you wrote or a discussion you started, LinkedIn lets you bookmark them. Here’s how:
- Go to your activity feed and locate the post.
- Click on the bookmark icon on the post.
- This adds it to your “Saved Items” section accessible from the top menu.
Saving noteworthy posts makes it easy to revisit them later. You can remove items from Saved Items when no longer needed.
Viewing posts on your LinkedIn Page
If you have a Company or Showcase Page on LinkedIn, posts made through those pages can be viewed separately:
- Go to your LinkedIn Page.
- Click on “Page Analytics” from the admin toolbar.
- Here you will see an overview of page activity including posts.
- Toggle between different post types using the filters.
This gives you analytics on how well your Page’s posts are performing. You can also export page activity reports for further analysis.
Finding your old posts on mobile
The LinkedIn app for iOS and Android also lets you access your profile’s post archive through the following steps:
- Launch the LinkedIn app on your device.
- Go to your profile page.
- Tap on “See all activity” below your profile photo.
- This will display all your posts sorted by recency.
You can tap on any post to view details or re-share it. Use the filter icon to only see posts of a certain type like articles, images, etc.
Deleted posts no longer appear
If you delete a post on LinkedIn, it gets removed from your profile feed and will no longer be visible in your activity archive. The only exception is deleted posts may still show up in the notifications feed of people who engaged with it earlier.
So if any of your connections liked, commented, or shared a post that you end up deleting, they would still see it in their notifications history. But it would no longer be viewable on your profile.
Why view your previous LinkedIn posts?
Here are some common reasons to look through your old LinkedIn posts and activity:
- To remind yourself of important updates you shared in the past.
- To evaluate how your posts have been received and re-share well-performing ones.
- Checking for any inappropriate content that needs to be removed.
- Assessing whether your posting strategy needs improvement.
- Finding discussions you started to follow up with connections.
Viewing your previous LinkedIn activity provides useful insights to optimize your profile and engagement. It can also jog your memory on meaningful interactions with your network.
How long does LinkedIn store your posts?
LinkedIn keeps your profile activity and posts archived indefinitely as long as your account remains active. There is no limit to how far back you can scroll to see your old posts and engagement.
Even if you delete your account, LinkedIn states they may retain your profile data and posts for up to 30 days before permanent removal. But there is no set expiry for active account posts.
Post visibility depending on your privacy settings
Your LinkedIn privacy settings control who can see your posts and activity. Here are the possibilities:
- Public – All posts visible to anyone on or off LinkedIn.
- Connections only – Posts only visible to your 1st-degree connections.
- Invite-only – Posts restricted to connections you individually approve.
So your post visibility in search results and other’s feeds will depend on the audience you have configured in your account settings. But you will always be able to see all your activity.
Archiving important posts outside LinkedIn
While LinkedIn stores your posts indefinitely, you may want to archive special updates externally in case you ever delete your account. Here are some ways to save important posts:
- Copy-paste the text into a Word doc or Google Drive.
- Take screenshots of the posts and save images to your computer.
- Use browser extensions to save LinkedIn pages as PDFs.
- Bookmark the posts in your web browser for easy access.
Backing up noteworthy posts ensures you have copies even if you delete your LinkedIn account someday. You can archive to external drives or cloud storage as needed.

LinkedIn’s premium job seeker and business subscription plans come with additional analytics for your posts and profile views. Features include:

Upgrading to a premium plan provides more data on your posts’ reach and viewer demographics. This helps further optimize your content strategy and engagement.
Tracking your brand and company mentions
Beyond your own posts, you can also track LinkedIn mentions of your brand, products, or company. Here are some tips:
- Set up LinkedIn alerts for your brand name and keywords.
- Use LinkedIn’s advanced search to find relevant posts.
- Try LinkedIn listening tools to identify trending topics.
- Use third-party social listening tools tailored for LinkedIn.
Monitoring brand mentions lets you find relevant conversations to engage in and influencers to connect with. Keeping tabs on what people post about your company provides useful competitive intelligence.
