Killing your LinkedIn Group Babies to Enhance Profits

Sometimes within a group you will get a trouble maker. Someone who spams their marketing messages. Or someone who just tries to cause trouble within your discussions.

The solution is often simple. Remove them from the group.

1 – Navigate to your group page and click on manage.

2 – On the side bar click “Participants,” and then click “Members.”

3 – Search the first and last names of the people you want to remove, select the tick box next to them and then click “Remove.”

Sometimes the offending member will not show in this screen. If that is the case, and they are a spammer, you can follow these additional steps:

6 – On the manage page click “Submission Queue” or “Moderation Queue” whichever the offending post is in.

7 – Click the check box next to the picture of the offending post.

8 – Then above the section click “Change Permissions.”

9 – Then click “Block & Delete.”

10 – Finally confirm the deletion and click “Block & Delete” again.

This will remove both the offending post and offending poster from the group

Tough Talk

Sometimes it is hard to give up a member of a group, but if they are damaging the status quo they need to go! You have got to give them a kick. Disruptive members of groups, however loyal in the past, must be removed and replaced with new positive members.

Tool Tip

If the offending person’s name does not show up straight away, try searching for just their first, and just their last names. This might help refine the search. It may require searching through a few “Andrews” or “Smiths” but it can help LinkedIn find the offender more easily.
