LinkedIn rarely bans accounts—but it is possible to get banned on this social networking platform. This comes in the form of an account restriction, also referred to as “LinkedIn Jail”. If you are using LinkedIn to expand your platform, you do not want to end up on LinkedIn Jail, because this puts all your lead generation efforts on the site to a complete halt.
In some cases, LinkedIn bans accounts because of illegal activity such as scams. But most of the time, accounts get banned because they are repeatedly reported for spamming.
What many people don’t know is that when they send a connection request and the recipient selects “I don’t know this person”, it is exactly the same as getting marked as spam. This is why you need to be careful about sending connection requests and only send them to people you actually know in real life.
