Like many, I became frustrated by my LinkedIn homepage, which contained many irrelevant articles, jokes and Facebook style commentary. In my quest for a solution, I stumbled across what I believe is THE game changing, killer personalization feature. LinkedIn has now become my Number 1 content source for Technology news and I don’t have to read anything else. The only problem is – this unknown feature has not been publicized, so it is well hidden and not easy to find.
How did I do it? It is remarkably easy when you know how.
UNFOLLOW allows you to remove a person’s content from your HomePage while staying connected to the individual.
I adopted the ‘3 strikes and you are out’ method for managing my home page. If you post more than 3 articles which I am not interested in, then it’s time to use the UNFOLLOW.
If you UNFOLLOW someone by mistake, you can always go to Privacy & Settings > Blocking and hiding > Unfollowed > Change to Follow them again.
Now I don’t have to put up with those really annoying posts and I come to one place for all my Tech News. Thanks to LinkedIn for an amazing feature!
