To draw your attention to the post or maybe to give you recognition for something. It’s fine as far as LinkedIn etiquette is concerned but you might be penalised if they then untag themselves from your LinkedIn post.

How do I untag myself from a LinkedIn comment?

LinkedIn itself tells us that to remove a mention or tag of yourself, you need to:

  • Click the More icon in the top right corner of a connection’s post.
  • Click Remove mention from the list of options that appears.
  • Click Remove.
  • The post will no longer link to your profile although your name will remain in the comment (because it’s not your comment to edit).

Why would I untag myself from a LinkedIn post?

The content may not be relevant to you. The opinions expressed might not be right for you. You might not want to be associated with the person who tagged you. There are lots of good reasons to untag yourself from a LinkedIn post.
