LinkedIn has changed its interface again and the old way you talked about [see Remove spammy LinkedIn connection] doesn’t work any more. What’s the easy way to do this?
LinkedIn has indeed changed its user interface again, making all previous instructions on how to unlink someone or delete their connection obsolete. But the good news? It’s also a lot easier now, which suggests that perhaps people were complaining that it was too convoluted! Perhaps it’s just a consequence of LinkedIn becoming more popular too, that as the site’s gotten bigger, more and more people inevitably try to exploit their connections in ways that come across poorly to others.
Now it’s as easy as going to the person’s profile page and clicking on a link.
Let me show you…
First off, here’s my designated demo chap for this example, appearing on my news stream:
A click on their name gets me to their profile page:
See the tiny triangle adjacent to the “Endorse” button? Click on it and a menu pops up:
You can see it at the bottom, “Remove connection”.
Choose “remove” and it’s a done deal.
Oh, and if the person doesn’t show up in the news stream, you can search for them:
If they’re shown as a “1st” connection, you’re connected. Choose them, and, again, disconnect and you’re good to go.
Now let’s see how long this will stay consistent with the LinkedIn user interface!
