QUESTION OF THE DAY: Maria, some of my connections are routinely posting low quality content, links that frankly have nothing to do with the professional world and pictures I could do without. What’s worse, they post frequently, so my news feed is difficult to navigate. Other than block them, what can I do?
ANSWER: Sorry to hear about your connections misbehaving . Fortunately, there is an easy remedy to this plague.
Next time you see an update that doesn’t add joy or value to your life:
– Hover over its top right corner.
– You will see a Hide button.
– Click on it and you won’t see future updates from the offending party.
The person will not know you hid their updates and you can Undo at any time if you find that you miss seeing puzzles and pet pictures as part of your LinkedIn experience.
