You can tag or untag anyone who's saved in your LinkedIn Contacts. Tags are simple keywords to help organize and sort your contacts. They can be added from the Contacts page or a person's profile.

To add or remove a tag on a profile:

  1. Go to the profile and click Relationship in the top section of the profile under the member's photo.
  2. Click Tag.
  3. Check the box next to an existing tag or click +Add new tag to create a new one. If you create a new tag, type in the name and click Save. To remove a tag, uncheck the box next to it.

To add or remove a tag from the Contacts page:

  1. Move your cursor over Connections at the top of your homepage and select Keep in Touch.
  2. Move your cursor over the contact in the list and click Tag below the contact's information.
  3. 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.
