What to do if you have more than one LinkedIn account

by admin on May 19, 2012

Having multiple LinkedIn accounts is a bad idea. First, LinkedIn’s terms of service (TOS) prohibit having more than one LinkedIn account. So having multiple LinkedIn accounts could result in all of them being suspended by LinkedIn. Secondly, it creates confusion from people who want to connect with you.

Unfortunately there is no way to combine LinkedIn accounts. What you need to do is close the duplicate(s) account(s) (click here to see how to do this.) However before closing the accounts, you should export your connections (click here to see how to do this) and your recommendations (click here to see how to do this.)
