Tuesday Tips: Making Your LinkedIn Feed Work for You
April 18, 2017
Your LinkedIn Feed is designed to surface topics you care about from sources that matter to you. It contains updates from your network, people and companies you follow, and recommended industry content based on your profile. Ultimately though, it’s your feed and we’re giving you the tools to build an experience you love.
Here are two things you can try out today.
Need a fresh perspective? Accessing the diverse views and news shared on LinkedIn is quick and easy. Whether you’re on your phone or laptop, click on the control icon on the top right corner of any post in your feed and choose “Improve my feed.” From there you can browse and follow new thought leaders, companies of interest, and news outlets. And you’re done. You should start seeing these sources directly in your Feed.
And if you don’t want to commit to following, you can also quickly check out the Trending Storylines tab to get the top highlights of news and views impacting your professional world. Don’t you feel smarter already?
What about those connections you care about, but you want to skip the updates? We’ve got a solution for that too. Simply unfollow people or companies from this same menu. The beauty is that for those that are existing connections, your relationships remain intact -- and they won’t be notified that you’ve unfollowed them. You can also hide posts so you don’t see them in your feed -- while this is something that may feel taboo, it can be helpful in getting the maximum value from your feed.
