Have you caved in to too many random LinkedIn connect requests? Seeing too many strangers in your newsfeed?
LinkedIn for personal use is as valuable as you make it, so you may want to de-clutter your network and remove connections you don’t actually know or are spamming your newsfeed. Strangely, LinkedIn has hidden the option to remove connections — you can’t even find the option to do so on a connection’s profile page (which is where you unfriend people on Facebook or unfollow people on Twitter, on those respective networks). Here’s how to disconnect from people on LinkedIn.
1. Click Contacts in the top navigation
2. Click the Remove Connections link right below the main search box
3. Select people you want to disconnect from and click Remove Connections.
If it’s hard for you to tell who you want to disconnect from just by Last Name, First Name, open the main Contacts view in a new tab. You can filter people on the left — especially if you’ve set up a tagging system. Or you can just scroll through your contacts and see their images and job titles. Then go back to the first tab and check the box to the left of their name.
