Getting Kicked Out Of LinkedIn
When I received a warning from LinkedIn, notifying me that I was about to get locked out, I decided to do some research and find out what the limits are and what to do about them, so that you wouldn’t have to worry about getting accidentally locked out of your LinkedIn account.
If I Can Help, I Will
However, if you do something stupid, and need my help, let me know and I’ll do my best!
- 3,000 Connection InvitationYou only get to send out 3,000 connection invites, so use them wisely.
- 50 Emails At A TimeYou can only send out emails to 50 people at a time – so don’t waste your time adding more people to the “To” line. Get smart about tagging your connections as your grow your network. You’ll thank me later.
- 50 Groups Only You’re only allowed to join 50 groups, and only 5 per day until you reach the 50. Once you reach 50 groups, you’ll have to leave a group in order to join a new group.
- 10 Groups (Managed or Owned by YouYou’re only allowed to own and/or manage 10 groups (unless you were lucky and managed to own more than 10 before this rule changed.)
- 30,000 LinkedIn ConnectionsYour LinkedIn account allows you have 30,000 connections maximum. After you’ve reached 30,000 connections, export those connections so you don’t lose any and then start doing some trimming. There’s probably a better solution for what to do when you’ve reached 30,000 connections, but since I’m only at 17,000 – I haven’t had to logistically solve that problem for myself yet. I’ll let you know when I do.
