How to delete a LinkedIn account

Last week, I posted about Sybil syndrome–the phenomenon that occurs when you have duplicate LinkedIn accounts. The last step in fixing the problem is deleting the account you no longer wish to retain. Here’s how you do it:

1. Log in to the LinkedIn account you no longer wish to retain. Double check to ensure this is really the one you want to delete.

2. In the upper-right-hand-corner, hover the mouse over your name, then click “Settings.” (See below.)

3.  Click on the “Accounts” tab on the left hand side and then click on “Close your account.” (See below.)

 4. Follow the prompts that will walk you through the process. (If it seems like you have to verify over and over again, that’s for your protection.)
That’s it–now you’re back to having a single personality…at least on LinkedIn.
