LI Tip for Exploring Full Names

                                      I am going to discuss one of the trick for finding full names of LI users.Let’s start with a private profile of the person with the title Manager at T Bank.Open his private profile in a new window. Copy his Linkedin Id from the address bar(95514977 in this example).Now paste this id at the end of the link below:

For this you need to a member of this group “Boolean Strings”(with the group id 1176637). You can use any other group for which you are a member.Simply replace the group id in the above link with your group id.
Now open the above link in the new window.The picture looks like as shown below:
Although this person doesn’t belongs to this group, but it looks like(from the above picture) as if he is a member of the group Boolean Strings(with a group id 1176637).
Now right click on the person’s name and Click on “Open in a new tab”. You will get the full name for this contact. You can explore full names of 3rd degree contacts in this way.

LinkedIn Email Validation

I came across many companies following more than one email pattern for employees.It can be firstname.lastname@companydomail.com, firstnameinitial.lastname@companydomain.com, lastnameinitial.firstname@companydomain.com or something else. In such cases it is difficult for us to append email addresses for employees.
Here is a little shortcut method to validate email ids of Linkedin profiles created @companydomain.com

I am taking an example of the linkedin profile with the below link

Click the link below

Now start typing all the priority email pattern in the email field. Select one of the category(Colleague, Service provider, ..)
and the click on continue as shown in the picture below.

If the next page is able to show you the name of the contact(Michele H. in the above example), this means that the person has created his LI profile with the email id taken in the example. See the picture below.
But, if i will use the wrong email id for the same contact, next page is not able to show the name for the contact. See the picture below(with the wrong email used for the same contact)
Thus you can validate email ids of any linkedin profile created using @companydoman.com
