by · October 18, 2012

This social media tutorial video will cover how to remove yourself from a Linkedin group. I will also highlight a few benefits to joining Linkedin groups as well as some reasons of  you may want to remove yourself from a Linkedin group. First you are going to navigate to the Groups tab at the top of your page and Linkedin will display all the groups you are associated with.
