Introduction: The Importance of Linkedin
LinkedIn profiles are public, even after a user deletes their account. They do this so that hiring managers can find people who have previously applied for jobs. This means that if someone you don’t want to follow your profile anymore uses the site, they can always reapply and follow your new profile. If this sounds like a problem, it isn’t. In fact, you don’t even have to be a member of LinkedIn to create profiles and follow people. LinkedIn allows anyone to do so, including complete beginners. The reason this feature exists is because there are thousands of people who have been added as your connection. There is no way for these people to know that you have blocked them on the site. This can result in your profile’s information being viewed by people you don’t wish to associate with. I have seen profiles being viewed by people I have blocked, who are not even members of LinkedIn.
What is the Best Way to Unfollow Someone on Linkedin?
Well, if you have a detailed account of how they acted badly that made you decide to unfollow them, then yes. But if they either were just someone looking at your profile and you don’t want them to find out who you are or if you just unfriended them because they were making weird comments and you don’t want them to find out who you are, then the best way is not to leave any comment. You don’t have to explain who you are at all. You can just remove them from your circle without leaving any comments. People do that all the time even if they had nothing bad to say about the person.
But yes, if you just want to remove someone from your circle without explaining any reason, then don’t even leave a comment as it will be meaningless in connection with the situation. Just simply unfollow them from your list of connections and it’s done. You will feel better and all the problems will be over.
As for our question, the only way to unfollow someone is to remove them from your circle of connections. If you just want to remove them from your list of connections but leave them a comment, then don’t. It will be meaningless as you don’t need any comments there anyway.
How to Delete and Unsubscribe from an Email List on LinkedIn?
Go to the member’s profile and click on “Unsubscribe from e-mail updates”(that is what LinkedIn has decided to call it) in the right column. You see that there is an option to unsubscribe from the mailing list in the bottom right corner. Click on “Unsubscribe” and then click on “Confirm.”
I do not know how to unfollow people in LinkedIn. I have a group called “my friends” and I have chosen people who are already in the group. The members of this group are those who are already Facebook friends with me. The group has the feature to choose “Friends” or not. When you want to add new members to this group, you choose “Other”. The new members are those who do not have a Facebook account and you can add them directly to the group.
Conclusion & Final Thoughts- Why it Matters that You are Able to Control Your Connections
Most people don’t realize that, no matter what you do, someone who is connected to you can always find out who you are. If they use LinkedIn heavily, they will definitely be able to find out who their friend is, even if they don’t ask him or her directly. So it is important that you are able to control who a potential future boss or client can find out about your background.
It is important to be able to remove the wrong connections. If you are connected with a former coworker of yours, who you fired for stealing from the company, it can possibly ruin your career. We take many people’s integrity for granted these days but in the business world, people will shun anyone who is deemed untrustworthy. You don’t want to be that person. As it is said in the scriptures, “A good name is to be more desired than great riches.”
