Some of the top weirdos are – right now – looking at your LinkedIn profile and I know how you feel.

  1. Ex-partners, ex-lovers, ex-gf who cheated on you.
  2. Randoms you “scarily” dated
  3. Your former boss – you never agreed with – who now wants to be your LinkedIn friend.
  4. Sales reps who don’t leave you alone
  5. Bad people pretending to behave nicely

You want your profile to essentially disappear from all those familiar “strangers”.

But before I show you how to block someone on Linkedin, let me tell you something you have probably been turning a blind eye to…

  • You have been trying hard to build an audience on Linkedin that you do not even own.
  • You cannot transfer your hard-earned LinkedIn followers to your own CRM or another platform.
  • Your customer acquisition costs from LinkedIn ads are through the roof.

Blocking LinkedIn members can help stop unwanted or harassing messages, connection requests, or comments from individuals who are inappropriate, spammy or irrelevant to your LinkedIn professional network.

It’s important to use the LinkedIn blocking feature carefully and only when necessary.

The LinkedIn team encourages professional networking, so blocking should typically be reserved for instances where communication is unwanted, inappropriate, or potentially harmful to your experience on LinkedIn.
