How to “Tune Out” Noisy LinkedIn Connections

I’m getting a little too inspired on LinkedIn, are you?

 

First off, let me make it very clear that I do not claim to be  a self – proclaimed “Social Media Guru”.  I don’t know how to get you thousands of followers or help you maximize engagement (so over that buzz word).

I’ve been using LinkedIn since 2009 and must say it’s always been one of my favorite social networking sites.

For the last couple of years on LinkedIn I didn’t have to worry about baby pics, duck face selfies, or “Sign up here to win an Ipad”.

However, with LinkedIn’s gain in popularity, and the evolution of their feed it appears as though my LinkedIn experience is going the same way as Facebook…… 90% junk.

We all have those noisy connections that we want to stay connected with.  It’s just that we don’t want to see their face 20 times a day with a different Inspirational Quotes……. I thought those belonged on Twitter?? Dammit!

Here is a simple way to “hide” (not remove) connections that are clogging up your feed….

1) From the desktop version of LinkedIn hover to the right side of any post in your feed

2) You will notice “Hide” appear

3) Click “Hide” – Don’t worry you can undo if you have second thoughts

Once a month I usually give LinkedIn and Twitter a cleanse.  This helps me maximize the time I spend on these sites.

What do you like about LinkedIn? Let me know in the comments.

ps. Duane Marino is a good guy, he just happened to be in my feed when I needed a screenshot.
