How To Remove or Delete a LinkedIn Connection From Your LinkedIn Network

Do you want to remove a person from your LinkedIn connections? If you are not very familiar with LinkedIn, you may be thinking that why would anyone want to remove a connection from their LinkedIn network, the bigger the network, the better.

Actually its not true. Your LinkedIn connections should reflect the current direction of your career. So, if you are a WordPress developer, a connection with a plumber on LinkedIn will do no good. So its better to remove that LinkedIn connection. You can always add it again once you have decided to go into plumbing business.

Its very easy to remove a LinkedIn connection from your LinkedIn profile. First go to your LinkedIn homepage and click on Contacts > Connections.
