Merging duplicate profiles in LinkedIn

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.
