In addition to this post, I decided to build a form that allows you to acquire the full name and access to the profile of a 3rd Degree or Out of Network connection by simply adding a user profile ID in the text area below and submitting it.
NOTE: As of 12/19/2013, LinkedIn is forcing a redirect to PYK when using this tool and others like it. This is not an issue with the tool. I will be monitoring this to see if the issue resolves.
If you’re not sure where we get the LinkedIn user ID, go to any profile and you’ll find the ID number immediately after id= in the URL. Example: (linkedin.com/profile/view?id=1234)
