How to leave LinkedIn groups

February 25, 2011

When I first joined LinkedIn I enthusiastically became a member of several special interest groups.  After a few years of getting spammed I finally got fed up and tried to put an end to it.  It took me quite a long time to figure out how to do this.  Like several other functions on LinkedIn they don’t make it easy to leave groups.  I Googled the answer first, as one does, but the problem with Google is that social media sites are constantly changing so information on functionality is often out of date.

So anyways, if you want to leave a group on LinkedIn here is the current way how to do it:

First go to MY GROUPS from the GROUPS tab at top of page

Then click on the link for the group you want to leave (not the logo but the text link)

Then you will be directed to the group’s page.  Look for the group’s tab along the top that says MORE and click

From the drop down menu select MY SETTINGS

On the bottom right hand corner of the page there will be a grey button that says LEAVE GROUP click it

To leave another group start from beginning by clicking on GROUPS tab at top of page and selecting MY GROUPS again to begin process

It’s such a long involved process, one should simply be able to select more than one group and bulk leave…alas this is LinkedIn after all, the crappiest of the social networking sites so until Facebook and Google get together and produce a superior product we will just have to deal.

Here’s a funny video:
