LinkedIn removed, how to proceed?
If you have removed your account from Linkedin, this will be visible on the site itself. Your profile is no longer active. However, your profile will still appear in search engines. It takes a few days to sometimes even weeks before your profile is also removed from search engines. If you want to speed up this process, you can submit a request to a search engine yourself.
Why Delete LinkedIn?
There are several reasons why people choose to delete their LinkedIn profile. This may be for privacy reasons, but also simply because you’re tired of the social network or don’t have time for it anymore. There are so many social networks like Facebook and Twitter, but also a lot of smaller players are active there, it takes a lot of time to participate in everything and it’s just which website you like the most.
