WHAT IS A LINKEDIN ID?

A Linkedin ID is a unique numeric identification assigned to all Linkedin users. If you have a LinkedIn account, you should have your own unique LinkedIn identification number. Your LinkedIn ID number is useful when connecting other apps to your LinkedIn account. For example, if you are using Hubspot for lead generation, you will need to have your Linkedin ID ready when connecting Hubspot with Linkedin.

LINKEDIN ID – SOME OTHER USAGES

If you are developing a site or an application that taps into LinkedIn through its API (application programming interface), you might find it useful. LinkedIn’s API allows you to look up users and access their data by their numeric ID, which may be easier for your program to track than a full name.

DO NOT CONFUSE YOUR LINKEDIN ID WITH YOUR LINKEDIN URL

When you sign up for a LinkedIn account, Linkedin assigns you a Web address that combines your name with a hexadecimal number that is related to your user ID. This URL is hard to remember and type and can also harm your search engine rankings. You can customise your LinkedIn URL, though.
