Linkedin

To comply with Linkedin Terms of Service, ProspectSafari does not automatically scrape Linkedin profiles.

However the ProspectSafari Extension allows the user to right-click on any Linkedin profile link or in any empty area on a Linkedin profile in order to add the person as a contact.

A popup will ask if you wish to add a contact to the last edited prospect. Failing this, the contact can be added as a new prospect to the list selected as the current list in the extension popup (click the ProspectSafari icon in the browser navigation bar to see this popup).

Similarly, right-click on any company logo in a person’s “Experience” section in their Linkedin profile will add both the company and the contact Linkedin profile urls, name, etc.
