On Facebook I use friend lists to organize my connections. How can I do the same in LinkedIn?
The equivalent of Facebook friend lists for LinkedIn are tags:
To add or remove a tag from the Contacts page:
- Move your cursor over Network at the top of your homepage and select Contacts.
- Move your cursor over the contact in the list and click Tag below the contact's information.
- Check the box next to an existing tag or click +Add new tag to create a new one. If you create a new one, type in the name of your tag and click Save. To remove a tag, uncheck the box next to it.
The tag will be visible to you on the person's contact information and on their profile. You can click the tag in these areas to see all other profiles with the same tag. Only you will see the tags you've created.
Note: You can create up to 200 new and unique tags or delete old ones.
As of 2018-03-25, the LinkedIn tagging feature is no longer available. There does not appear to be a way to self-organize LinkedIn contacts within the system itself.
