Posting TOO often on LinkedIn can often be just as bad (if not worse) than never posting at all.

Someone in my network publishes a post every HOUR (it’s not Twitter people!), but I don’t want to lose that person as a connection.

Here’s how you can “hide” their posts so you can still stay connected while getting rid of their “noise” in your feed.


Step 1: Click on the three dots in the top right hand corner of their profile.

Step 2: Click “unfollow” if you don’t want to see any of their posts, or click “Hide this post” if you simply want LinkedIn’s algorithm to recognize the content you would prefer not to see.

Note: Your connection will NOT receive a notification that you’ve hidden their post or have “unfollowed” them.

Hope this was helpful! If so, pass it on.
