This exchange on Twitter showed that it’s difficult to find how to unfriend or remove a connection from LinkedIn — but I’ll show you how below. You just need to know where to look.
The tricky part is that you can’t remove the LinkedIn contact from the profile page. Instead:
1. Click “Contacts” from the main LinkedIn menu bar.
2. Click “Remove Connections” from the upper right corner.
3. Select the name(s) you wish to remove.
4. Click the “Remove Connections” button.
Now why would you want to delete a LinkedIn contact? Unless the person is abusive or spamming the heck out of you, I’d err on keeping the connection even if you’ve had a falling out. Why burn the bridge? But, now you know how to do so if you ever need to — or if your pastor asks how to drop a parishioner from his LinkedIn address book.
