LinkedIn followers tracking

Hello,


Does anyone have a tip on how to track LinkedIn followers over time with the Google Sheets connector?


As I understand it, right now the only option right now seems to be to show a specific time-frame and compare it to another and that's it.


I would prefer to add rows with the number of followers on a given date and keep records, but the "date" split options are incompatible with follower data.


Thanks for any tips on this!

  • Hi Filipe,


    thanks for your question.


    Have you tried setting Follower trend as the metric, and split by date? Should work.

  • Thanks for the tip. Yes, that seems to have done the trick.

  • Hi Heidi,

    I tried to create the same report but I got an error message saying:

    Query failed: Metrics from the FOLLOWER DETAILS group cannot be split by time. Use metrics from the FOLLOWER STATISTICS group instead.

    Any idea?

    Thanks!

  • Hi Valentino,


    Unfortunately LinkedIn has deprecated the follower statistics report at the API upgrade to LinkedIn API v2. 

    Please check the note at https://developer.linkedin.com/docs/guide/v2/organizations/follower-statistics#follower.

    Sorry for the inconvenience, there's sadly nothing we can do about it.

    Thank you for your feedback..

    Is there any alternative solution to split LinkedIn followers by country (that actually works :) )?

    Many thanks!
