How to Unsubscribe from LinkedIn

By default, LinkedIn sends you email messages on site elements including suggestions, invitations, updates, news and comments. If you tire of this constant barrage, you can unsubscribe to some or all of these notifications and regain a more manageable inbox. Likewise, if you gave LinkedIn your cell number, you might additionally receive "push notifications" through your mobile device; these messages can also be stopped.
