Finally LinkedIn announced on Friday That the much awaited and required feature is now available for anyone who’s ever been spammed on the social network: member blocking. That’s one thing LinkedIn didn’t have prior to today

The feature has long been requested, especially on a social network full of members eager to make professional connections — who might cross the bounds of accepted etiquette to do so. “We built this feature not only because it was a feature our members requested but because we also knew it was the right thing to do,” said Paul Rockwell, who heads up the Trust & Safety unit at LinkedIn.

It lets users do away with unwanted attention from other members.

How to Block ?

To block a member, head to that person’s LinkedIn profile and select the “Block or report” option from the drop-down menu next to the “Connect” and “Send InMail” buttons. But before you head to that person’s profile, the company suggests, turn on the anonymous profile-viewing feature, which lets you see other members’ LinkedIn pages without them knowing it. refer to the above Image for more clear view on how and where you will find the block button.

Blocking a member will disallow both of you from seeing each other’s profile, and if you’re connected, that connection automatically breaks. You also won’t be able to message each other, and all endorsements and recommendations will be removed. The blocked person will not be notified that they’ve been shunned, and you can block up to 50 members at a time.

It warns, however, that all public information still remains viewable — such as the information of your public profile, and any comments you might have made in a public group. If you change your mind, you can also unblock a person, but you won’t be able to block them again for another 48 hours.

The ability to block people on social networks seems like a basic idea. Now, thanks to a new (and aptly named) Member Blocking feature, LinkedIn will start letting you block other members on the site. LinkedIn points out that while having an option to block users may sound quite simple, it wasn’t easy to bake into its product. Paul Rockwell, LinkedIn’s head of Trust & Safety, cited the need to research different use case scenarios, and coming up with the right interface as some of the reasons why this tool took a while to develop.

We hope you are not going to send a request to anyone unknown on LINKEDIN npw because it now has a blocking feature .Or start blocking those who are giving you restless surfing on linkedin.
