Spamming is a pain in the arse!! Most social media platforms have their fair share of spammers, including LinkedIn…
There are steps you can take to control spam in LinkedIn
HOW TO REMOVE A CONNECTION THAT IS SPAMMING YOU ON LINKEDIN
- Click on ‘Connections’;
- On the right hand side click ‘Remove Connections’ and select the connections you want to remove;
- Click on ‘Remove Connections’.
HOW TO REPORT AN EMAIL RECEIVED INTO YOUR LINKEDIN INBOX AS SPAM
- Open the email and click on the button ‘Report Spam’; When a LinkedIn user receives a number (I think it’s currently 5, I think) of ‘Report Spam’ confirmations they will be reprimanded (currently their account is suspended).
