I found out how to do this and have canceled my LinkedIn account.
They make it hard to close it, don't they?
I joined long ago at the behest of an old friend. The only things that came out of that were unsolicited offers of employment and requests to 'friend' (?) people I did not know. The last straw was getting an invitation to 'friend' an old boss whom I detested. Nuts to that. I also found that the rigid format of experience LinedIn wanted did not suit me. If I ever decide to re-connect, I will put a minimal description and a link to a personal web page. (Unlike many here, I will not be in a great financial position and may have to find odd jobs. Also unlike many here, I like my work, so no biggie.)
My name is not common but Google has detailed information on where I have lived all over the country. Oddly enough, there are several people with the same name on LinkedIn and one well-known professional bowler. There is info on my sainted parents. No photos of me anywhere anymore, but there was when I was giving training.
