How to see number of LinkedIn followers for any member?

How to see number of LinkedIn followers for any member?

By default, LinkedIn shows number of connections on the public profile page of any LinkedIn member. But when number of connections are more than 500, it displays value as 500+.
I was wondering if it was possible to see exact number of followers (which is considered equal to number of connections).
The processes is easy, but i have seen people struggling for getting this done, so thought of writing the steps with screenshots to help out everyone. (I myself din't knew it, thanks to Sourabh.Jain for helping me out with this).

Here is the simplest way of doing this:

1) Log in into your LinkedIn account.

2) In the search box at the top of screen, Search for the person whom followers you wish to see.

3) On the public profile page, click on the drop down menu, and select 'View recent activity'

4) The activity page will show the total number of followers of that person.

It flows like this:
1) You set your priorities.
2) You collect data
3) Based on data you take decision to meet priorities.
Analytics helps in step 3. While Big Data helps in step 1.


"Analytics helps you in taking a right decision, while Big Data tells why should you take a decision at all"

The Big Buzz around Big Data is turning out into a new phenomenon. Big Data, which fundamentally deals with enormous volume, velocity and variety of data, has itself generated huge volumes of data (in form of blogs, articles, infographics, videos, and many more formats) across all channels and networks. And this is growing very rapidly, resulting further into generation of more data. Literally, trends shows that the term Big Data has gained too much popularity in past few years.

And even more interesting statistics would be that the word ‘Big Data’ on google search returns around 44,100,000 results (on 6th Oct 2014). (Source: Google.com)
So besides the increase in number of people interested in Big Data, these facts also corresponds that the digital activities around Big Data would be generating more number of clicks, page views, web logs and all sorts of structured and unstructured chunks of information increasing the digital content around Big Data. These would be further analyzed by number of analysts and data scientists, creating more number of jobs, and relevant trainings, articles, and all sorts of digital content.
