Merging duplicate profiles in LinkedInJanuary 26, 2016
LinkedIn is an excellent, online, professional networking platform.
Some people like it so much that they have multiple profiles!
It is advisable to: keep titles, companies, skill, accreditations and education current; write and upload posts and updates; endorse those you know; create projects and invite people with whom you are working to connect.
While it is not uncommon for a person who has left a job to retain a title and company name (sometimes for months) until they land a new role, it is preferable to avoid multiple profiles.
LinkedIn enables us to merge duplicate profiles of people to whom we are connected.
Under ‘My Network’, ‘Connections’
select ‘Filter by’, ‘Potential Duplicates’
A list appears with the portrait, name, title and company of any of our connections with the same name.
If you know more than one person named ‘David Brown’, you can uncheck a box next to the name. If you are connected to people who have duplicate profiles, you can click the box ‘select all’ and then ‘combine’ to merge all these profiles.
LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional online network. By merging duplicate profiles, we can keep our connection data accurate as well.

He held our hand through the process, making it as undaunting as possible.
He delivered a great selection of videos (from a one-day shoot), that really tell the Foodbank story and will be a great addition to our communications.
We have been fortunate to work with Andrew and his creative team from the inception of our business. The design and execution of our site has been fundamental in winning over clients and establishing our footprint in a very crowded space. We also place great value on their input into our business process.
You are a true professional Andrew, and your team was very impressive.
The results will be seen around the globe shortly as we embark on our new advertising campaign. I do greatly appreciate the extra lengths you went to under difficult circumstances, to help us achieve our goal.
