Collecting data from LinkedIn

Greetings,

I’m able to gather a user’s summary from their LinkedIn’s profile, but nothing else. How could I collect their experience and skills from their profile?

We don’t import this yet. If you need this please reach out support and we’ll talk about it.

@emmanuel can this feature be made available through the LinkedIn plugin ?

Yeah, we’d have to add things to the plugin.

I’ve try import.io to collect data from LinkedIn before. Scraping LinkedIn means to scrape data behind a Login. But there is no way doing that now with import.io.

I switched to another crawler called Octoparse.
It does work and so far so good.

Found a tutorial of collecting data from LK
extract-information-from-linkedin-public-data

But it is very to reach the limit to visit profiles.
Or you can just use the API provided by Linkedin.

Hope it would be helpful for you.

I am also looking to create a login via linkedin and collect data.

@emmanuel - Have we now started collecting fields like experience, education, profile photo or other fields.

Some of the fields are built-in, but now that the API connector supports OAuth, you can actually start adding the calls you want yourself.
